This is a continuation of the Jane Austen discussion from the "Pompey" thread.<br />http://www.textkit.com/greek-latin-forum/viewtopic . php?t=742;start=0<br /><br /><br />[quote author=Keesa link=board=6;threadid=742;start=15#7421 date=1064957477]<br />www.jasna.org <br /><br />That's the Jane Austen Society of North America, but they have articles and things like that, which you can enjoy regardless of where you are. (Indonesia, wasn't it?)[/quote]<br /><br />Here's a site. It's a huge site, so it can be overwhelming to navigate at first.<br />http://www.pemberley.com<br /><br />This site has several forums for discussing specific novels, as well as a forum for discussing the JA's life & times, and other peripheral or off topics. <br /><br />You'll also find full texts to the novels, and lots of other interesting information.<br /><br /><br />

What of course they don't have, are translations of the novels into Latin or Greek. If Harry Potter can do it ....

<br />"All this she must possess, and to all this she must yet add something more substantial, in the improvement of her mind by extensive reading."<br /><br /><br />

Somehow I don't think "extensive reading" is one of the thigns I lack. ;D
