Jane News

This is simply a geeking-out post, so excuse the hyper undertones and enjoy!

First of all, Jane Eyre: Writer's Digest Annotated Classics with Annotations by K.M Weiland is available on Amazon (and earning great reviews so far). Author K.M. Weiland looks at this beloved classic through the eyes of a writer and discusses technique, character development, symbolism, and much more. This is going to be a must-have; I can't wait to get my hands on this book!! (Click here to view on Amazon)

Second, The Jane Austen Centre has constructed a life-size wax model of Jane Austen, using her nephew James Edward Austen-Leigh's first hand account of Austen as well as other accounts.

"Her figure was rather tall and slender, her step light and firm, and her whole appearance expressive of health and animation. In complexion she was a clear brunette with a such colour; she had a full round cheeks, with mouth and nose small and well-formed, bright hazel eyes, and brown hair forming natural curls close round her face."

I got chills when I saw this - you all know how much I love Jane Austen's works!
(Think she's holding the start of a book in her hands? Which one do you think it is? Hehehe!)
