Tuesday Open Thread: Catching Up Edition


Welcome to Tuesday Open Thread, where we link stuff that doesn’t quite make the cut for a full post but we still think might be of interest to our readers. A lot of the stuff in this link we’ve had for a while but never got round to posting, partly because of the holidays and partly because of laziness. 🙂

Thanks to Alert Janeites Lisa and Patty for the links! We might have forgotten someone–pipe up in the comments. And this IS an open thread, so feel free to pimp your own Jane Austen-related links and projects in the comments, or just tell us what’s going on in your patch of Janeiteville.
