Today is the birth date of Jane Austen (1775-1817), one of the greatest literary writers of all time. All of her novels are on the 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die list. To celebrate, pick up a copy of one of her books (most of which are available for free from Google Books or at Project Gutenberg.
- Mansfield Park (Book 65 on the 1001 Books List)
- Lover’s Vows (play within MP)
- Pride and Prejudice (Book 64 on the 1001 Books List)
- Emma (Book 66 on the 1001 Books List)
- Persuasion (Book 69 on the 1001 Books List)
- Sense and Sensibility (Book 62 on the 1001 Books List)

I am not sure if my favorite is Pride and Prejudice or Emma, honestly. I may have to reread them both! Until tomorrow, Happy Reading!
