Purpose of this Blog...

You may have noticed that not all books are equal in capturing children's imaginations and in cultivating those innocent, tender souls. My goal is to help you find the ones that do!

A Birthday Announcement from Mr. Darcy

Mr. Darcy would like to wish Jane Austen a Happy 240th Birthday!  

He'd also like to announce the winners of my December Jane Austen Giveaway:

Caitlin T. and Marion C.  

Congratulations, ladies!


  1. Okay, but WHERE did you find that Mr Darcy bulb??!!!

    1. On Pinterest, which linked it to a Jane Austen shop/site in the UK. But the ornament isn't available any longer. :( If you want to check out the shop, it's here: https://janeausten.co.uk/shop/

    2. Oh my gosh - just found it! It's still available! https://janeausten.co.uk/product/mr-darcy-christmas-bauble/
