Caity | 144 comments Hi all! I'm new(er) to the group, but I can't help but be addicted! :D
Does anyone else find themselves checking on posts and notifications off and on ALL DAY, or randomly referring to the group for every day purposes, ect.?

Sophie | 1458 comments Haha! i have no idea what i would do with out Austen.
If someone put me in a room with the 6 Austens and the adaptation and something to play them on - i think i would be pretty happy... ;)

I think I would be too:)About little brothers...mine's getting excited about Austen since he just found out that she was the first to write about baseball(his favorite sport)in Northanger Abbey:)

message 19: by Xenia (new)

Xenia (collarcitybrownstone) | 63 comments I am new here too. It has only been two weeks since I joined Goodreads. I really love it here because you know that other people on here are as addicted to reading as much as you are. Otherwise why even join up. You can join groups about genre's and authors that you love and talk about it all day if you want. I am really enjoying the 2012 book challenge too. I read a lot but I have never counted how many books I read per year.


message 20: by Sophie (new)

Sophie | 1458 comments that is so true! i don't mind admiting and discuss my addictions as others share it too!


message 21: by Caity (new)

Sam Schoenback | 8 comments Hello! I am a huge Austen fan. I've read almost all of her books. I'm currently reading Emma which obviously is going great!! Can't wait to chat with people! :)


message 26: by Sophie (new)

Sophie | 1458 comments Hello! Where are you up to with Emma? :)
Emma was a Great story! :)

I actually just picked it up! So I'm only at the point where Emma and Harriet are friends and Emma's plotting to get her with the one gentleman. Mr Knightly is all up in her business HAHA


message 28: by Sophie (new)

Sophie | 1458 comments Oh i see!! Haha!! Yes he is! Love knightly though. Him and Emma are funny when they talk together!!

Yeah they definitely have a hilarious way of bantering! I can't wait to read more.

I would have considered myself addicted to Jane Austen but I only have a few symptoms. Alas, I must just be a fan. :-)


message 32: by Karlyne (new)

Karlyne Landrum I thought I was addicted, but I don't have the action figure, and I didn't know there were board books for babies. I'll be checking Amazon for those!


message 33: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer (jenniffler) Does anyone know where you can buy the Austen action figure in the UK? It would be great for my friend's birthday, but I can't find it anywhere :(


message 34: by Lisa (new)

Lisa (lisadannatt) | 148 comments Amazon?


message 35: by Lisa (new)

Lisa (lisadannatt) | 148 comments Just bought my niece the cozy classic of P&P on Amazon. Emma comes out later this year


message 36: by Karlyne (new)

Karlyne Landrum Just checked Amazon for the action figure and they have it new for around $75.00!
Or, you can get Oscar Wilde or Charles Dickens for $8.77...

I'm trying to decide if I can wait until Christmas for the board books. Are they as cute as they look, Lisa?


message 37: by Lisa (new)

Lisa (lisadannatt) | 148 comments Hi Karlyne,
I'm not sure what it looks like, I've posted it directly to her. The pics on google looked good. Although its a board book, it's got simple words for a kid learning to read. There's four classics at present and another four will be released between now and Christmas


message 38: by Karlyne (new)

Karlyne Landrum I'll probably order mine to be sent direct, too. I'm going to try to wait til Christmas, but they are on my Amazon Wish List now! Maybe I need one at my house, though....


message 39: by Sophie (new)

Sophie | 1458 comments Apparently the Austen figure is no longer made. They have them on eBay but for a lot of money I believe, due to the fact that they don't make them anymore


message 40: by Lisa (new)

Lisa (lisadannatt) | 148 comments Bet you have one Soph...


message 41: by Sophie (new)

Sophie | 1458 comments No actually! I wish I did! I only heard about them literally a few days ago and I was upset to see they aren't made anymore!! :O


message 42: by Bianca (new)

Bianca (bookhoarding) | 13 comments I've seen the action figure at some indie bookstores, so maybe there are still some out there (that aren't outrageously priced yet).


message 43: by Helena (new)

Helena Palma | 1 comments The board books are adorable!! I have P&P and Sense and Sensibility for my little girl and she loves them! Zulily happened to have dolls/totes based on the character drawings from the books and I got her a Darcy doll. Oh and Zulilly has great deals on those books sometimes. The Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights ones are great too.

awww I want to get my nieces P&P dolls! I have to hack into my sister's Zulily account more often. I got her daughter the P&P counting primer. It's so cute and Miss O (a precocious 3 1/2) loves it even now a year and a half later.


message 45: by Karlyne (new)

Karlyne Landrum I should be getting the Pride and Prejudice paper dolls tomorrow. I'll let you know just how good they are!
