My Top 10 Authors: Jane Austen
Who doesn’t adore Jane Austen? Probably several people, but none that I speak to (YAY for an acceptable group of friends!) There isn’t much that I can say that readers don’t already know. Her writing is lovely, and Pride and Prejudice will always have a special place in my heart.

Austen continues to be among the most widely read authors, and lets hope she stays that way. She possessed a unique ability to charm her readers and transport them to British countryside, and has continued to do so centuries later. Also, three cheers to this lovely lady for creating dear Mr. Darcy *swoon*
