An Austen links roundup

It’s been a busy few weeks so here are some links you might have missed:


— Remember the stately home that’s said to be the inspiration for Pemberley? It sold for £8 million!


— Have a friend who’s curious about your love for Jane Austen? Maybe show ’em this animated introduction to Jane Austen.


— Bookbub has its own “definitive” ranking of Austen’s heroes. Do you agree or disagree?


— Check out these obituaries of famous authors.


— The modern retellings of Austen’s works by contemporary authors continues. Here’s the cover reveal of Curtis Sittenfeld’s “Eligible,” her version of “Pride & Prejudice.”


— Speaking “P&P,” did you see the trailer for “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies”?
