Have you watched North & South? If not; DO!

Tweet I know this blog is called The Secret Dreamworld of a Jane Austen Fan, but all the same I will not shy away from bringing up things that might not be absolutely connected to Jane Austen if I find that they are close enough to the subject and I find them worthy of a mention here. One such thing is BBC’s series North & South. I took another opportunity of watching this film when Charlotte was here, as she had not yet seen it and I though that she should. The film has often been compared to Pride and … Continue reading

Back again!

Tweet So my dear friends, I’m back again. My friend Charlotte left yesterday, we have had some lovely days together. In Stockholm we managed to squeeze in several different must-see-sights as well as just spending some time strolling around browsing any nice stores we passed.

I am meeting on of my pen pals since many years back for the first time.

Maybe there will be some nice pictures to share here… who knows… 🙂 Bookmark on Delicious Digg this post Recommend on … Continue reading

My journey with Austen (so far)

Tweet Personally I always find it interesting to hear people’s stories of how they came to read Jane Austen’s books, so I thought I should share with you how I first came in contact with her work. I had heard of Jane Austen before, but I never really concidered reading her books (indeed, I didn’t even know what books she had written!) until November 2004. At the time I was, together with my family, on a six months trip around the world. We were at our first stop, which was Ann Arbor in Michigan. Being a family where 100% of us could … Continue reading

Welcome!

Tweet I should like to welcome you all most heartily to The Secret Dreamworld of a Jane Austen Fan and my corner of the internet! I am very glad that you chose to stop by for a visit and I think I should take this time to introduce myself and this blog to you now. My name is Aurora. I am an 18 year old Swedish girl, and, of course, a most devoted Jane Austen fan! Like so many others, I am of the decided opinion that Jane Austen is one of the greatest authors ever to grace this planet! … Continue reading
