Friday Finds—June 3, 2010

Friday FindsI found this week’s books either through reviews on blogs or Amazon. It’s a very Austen assortment. First up, I discovered that Robert Morrison has edited a new annotated edition of Austen’s [amazon_link id=”0674049748″ target=”_blank” ]Persuasion[/amazon_link], which is my favorite Austen novel, for Belknap Press at Harvard. I also discovered two new books via Austenprose: [amazon_link id=”0711231893″ target=”_blank” ]Tea with Jane Austen[/amazon_link] and [amazon_link id=”071122594X” target=”_blank” ]In the Garden with Jane Austen[/amazon_link] by Kim Wilson. I am a terrible gardener; I have the worst brown thumb ever, and it’s particularly bad considering my mother and grandfather seem to be so good with plants and gardens. However, this book looks so interesting. I am a bit more intrigued even by the tea book. I am a huge fan of a great cup of tea. I am looking forward to purchasing these books so that I can pore over the images.
