] I would like to request Austen Biographies be added to any bibliography (which I think is a great idea). I would also like to see some reviews of the avaliable biographies. There are quite a few, and I don't know which ones are worth reading and which ones are not.
Caroline, this is a great idea. I will go back to my favorite haunts (Borders, Crown Books, Library) and get a list together for you and email it. While I was researching for Young Fitz I literally sat in Crown Books one day and wrote notes out of a time-line history of the world, but can't remember the name now. It was very useful for music, literature, battles, etc.
BTW--love the blue background! My favorite colour (Wedgwood blue!)
Ann, I have the new Austen biography--the Obstinate Heart one--and intend to read it over the summer. Also have one by her nephew or grand-nephew, also unread as of the moment. As soon as I finish them I'll post reviews!!
Eight weeks without a computer should give me plenty of time for reading! ;-)
