Originally, I got my idea for a GR focus from my own focus on gossip and Nan Duval's on letters in our last P&P GR. I was planning to concentrate on NON-verbal information-gathering this time around, but I find there's just too much evidence, some in practically every chapter! Then I was going to concentrate on Elizabeth's powers of observation, and just how good they are, but the same problem arises, so I'll have to see what I can do.
(For the record, I find that non-verbal communication and information-gathering are very important in JA's novels - in an era where clear, honest and detailed sharing are valued (especially when it comes to personal issues), I think we tend to forget how much more discretion was valued in JA's time, and how much people were expected to keep to themselves, and as a result, figure out for themselves.)
