Anyone who knows me is aware that I can 'talk for England' on the subject of Jane Austen and it was lovely to indulge that pleasure!

If you know someone whose book deserves this kind of notice you can suggest one. Here is a little about them.
From their website:
We Do ItFrom the large and rapidly growing library of indie books that are available today, we select those that we believe deserve to be considered. These books are then read and evaluated by members drawn from our reader group. The readers judge the merits of the books based on our proprietary list of criteria. The single most important criterion that we ask our readers to use in judging a book is whether or not they would recommend it to their best friend. Once a book meets this standard of quality, we award it our B.R.A.G. Medallion™, and along with other medallion recipients, it is presented on this website.
Then, as if it couldn't get any better I received notice of this lovely review for Searching for Captain Wentworth from Kim of Reflections of a Book Addict.

Lastly, but by no means least, this lovely week will be topped off on Friday by a visit to my local library in High Barnet. I am giving a talk at the Chipping Barnet branch to celebrate the 200 year anniversary of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. My books and paintings will feature so if you're curious to know more I'd be delighted to see you. It's free!
