    Too true! I definitely don’t have the majority of Austen authors on here .. it’s a work in progress. Bring on the comments, everyone, and I’ll keep adding more!

    My absolute favorite was What Would Austen Do? I thought it was original and very funny – it says they are making it into a YA novel. Sounds great.
    Other kudos – The Chase, Mr. Bennet Meets His Match and Jane Austens Nightmare.
