I wanted to let you all know about new happenings in our Jane Austen group. First, I wanted to thank Jeannette for her time as moderator of our group, and I'm so glad she will continue on as a group member that we always enjoy discussing with.

Next I wanted to say that I will be moving to the spot of occasional Asst. Moderator and hope to still be on the group a lot too.

And this means of course that we are welcoming two new moderators. Megan and Rachel will be leading the group now. They are both interesting ladies that many of you have already conversed with, and I know you will enjoy their new ideas and new take on the Jane Austen group. I certainly appreciate their interest in the group. Thanks you two.

Welcome Megan and Rachel! I am looking forward to what you will both bring to the group. It is always such a pleasure to read and discuss Jane Austen's wonderful novels!

Thank you Sarah for your kind words! The group wouldn't be what it is today without all of your hard work these past years! I look forward to more interesting discussions with all of you and the rest of the group members. :)


message 3: by Megan (new)

Megan Thanks for the welcome as a moderator. Rather scary ;-) but I look forward to all the conversations and ideas that grow here.

But mostly - thank you to Jeannette and Sarah who have made this group so enjoyable for all of us. I hope that I can help to continue what they have done and that while they have different directions they need to go right now, that they don't sneak off from us too far!


Captain Sir Roddy, R.N. (Ret.) (captain_sir_roddy) Go get 'em, Megan and Rachel! I look forward to your steady hands upon the tiller of this very fine group! Cheers! Chris

Thank you! It's the wonderful members that make the group so much enjoyable!


Captain Sir Roddy, R.N. (Ret.) (captain_sir_roddy) Sarah, I am gonna miss you, my dear, ever so much! I truly hope that you shall not be a stranger, and fade off into the night. You are my 'bridle and reins' in all things Austen. I shouldn't know what to do without you. Your old pal, Chris

Wow, what a nice welcome from everyone! :)

Sarah, thanks so much for the confidence you've placed in Megan and myself--it means a lot. You and Jeannette had an amazing group going and all we can do is hope to keep it up! You two have to stay around a lot--this group wouldn't be the same without you.

Thanks Chris, Tanja, P, and Joy! I can't wait to talk to you all even more now! I hope you all like the ideas we have and continue to love this group!
