Book Beginnings: All Roads Lead to Austen by Amy Elizabeth Smith

This is a meme hosted by Rose City Reader.  They ask that you post the first line(s) to the book you are currently reading and share some feelings on the book.  I’m tweaking this a bit and I’m going to share first lines of books/stories, written by, about, or in the theme of Jane Austen.

I reviewed this book last year for Austen in August.  You can find my review here.

Jane Austen just won’t stay on the page. 

I enjoy everything I teach at a small university in California, but I especially love my Jane Austen course.  The students and I read her novels together, discuss Austen’s historical context, and explore the amazing ways Austen keeps coming to life through sequels, updates, and spin-offs – Bridget Jones, Bollywood, zombies, and all. 

Have you read this book? Did you like it?  There were mixed reviews within our group.
