Louise Allen‘s website mentions not only the sale-thru-mail of her delightfully-handy booklet, Walks Through Regency London, it also announces an updated Kindle version is now available at Amazon (only $2.99!) and Amazon.uk – you’ll enjoy these ten walks immensely.

Don’t have a Kindle? there are FREE reading apps available. I have one for my computer! Other apps for Cloud Reader, MACs, Blackberry, iPad – and more.

Louise also is the author of Walking Jane Austen’s London: A Tour Guide for the Modern Traveller. This, too, available from an Amazon near you.

Coming Soon: Some Books reviewed

Where does time go… too many things to do, and not enough time for READING. Here are two recent books sent to me that, sooner rather than later, will be reviewed here.

The first is the newer of the two, and what I’m currently reading:

<–The Jane Austen Guide to Happily Ever After, by Elizabeth Kantor (Regnery Publishing).

The second is Louise Allen‘s Walks Through Regency London–>

JASNA members will get a chance in the not-too-distant future to read my review of Romanticism and Music Culture in Britain, 1770-1840 by Gillen D’Arcy Wood (Cambridge University Press).

I’ve been “living” in the early part of the 19th century since this weekend. Lives filled with parties, Balls, travel, upsets in the carriage.  So these two books fit my mind-set of the moment: one discussing Jane Austen’s novels and the other the landscape she would have known. The time period and the landscape, of course, are the same for my two girls — Mary and Emma. Stay tuned!
