For those who, like me, can’t seem to get enough Jane Austen, whether it’s her books, information about her, variations on her works, or discussion of her works, I thought I’d share some of my finds. This will probably span several blog posts. First, there are a few YouTube channels I follow that provide content about Jane Austen or her fiction, some of them only occasionally, some more frequently. Here are a few of my favorite videos they’ve shared.
