On the Anniversary of Her Death

One hundred ninety years ago today, 18 July 1817, Jane Austen died. She was only 41 years old. The world lost a brilliant novelist. Thankfully, we still have her brilliant novels:

Pride and Prejudice
Sense and Sensibility
Northanger Abbey
Mansfield Park

What better way to honor Jane than by reading her delightful novels today? I highly recommend any of them, though my favorites are Pride and Prejudice and Persuasion.

Ms. Place posted this tribute at Jane Austen's World.

Requiscat in Pace, Jane!
