(Disclaimer: I have not seen, nor do I endorse the movie Becoming Jane; I just thought this picture was beautiful)
To kick off JA's birthday party, I present you with the Jane Austen's Birthday tag questions! (JA stands for Jane Austen, in case you didn't already guess that. I'm just too lazy to type "Jane Austen" every single time. Thank heavens her name wasn't Augusta Millicent Dinglehopper.)
Feel free to post these on your blog. I'm eager to read your answers! (I'll probably post mine later in the week.)
1 - What was the first JA novel you ever read, and who introduced you to it?
2 - Which is your least favorite JA novel, and why? (Everybody posts about their favorites... I want to know what's at the bottom of your list!)
3 - Who do you think is the funniest character JA ever created?
4 - Which JA villain[ess] do you love to hate?
5 - What's your favorite JA quote?
6 - If you were to "start" someone on JA, which book would you recommend to them first and why?
7 - What is your absolute favorite JA film adaptation and why?
8 - If you could authorize a new film adaptation of one of JA's novels, which would it be and why?
9 - Which JA character do you most identify with?
10 - If you could have lunch with JA today, what question would you most like to ask her?
11 - Is there any one thing that you think could have been improved upon in one (or all) of JA's books? What is it and why?
12 - If you could have lunch with one of JA's characters today, who would it be and why?
13 - (optional) Why is Miss Dashwood so fond of asking "why"?
