Top Ten Reasons to Read AUSTENTATIOUS

I stole this idea from someone on Twitter, and I’m embarrassed to say that I don’t even know who!  I was just scanning down the feed on my phone and thought, What a fun idea!  The idea took hold, and now, here I am, coming up with my own list.

So…. let’s get started.


10.  Reading about a cupcake is the next best thing to eating one.  (Admittedly, it’s a distant, and not nearly as satisfying, second.)

 9.   It’s a quick way to make sure you’re current on pop-culture references.  (Okay, maybe not totally current…)

 8.   If you’re planning a trip to Austin in the near future, take AUSTENTATIOUS along as a travel guide.

 7.   Haven’t you always wished that Jane Austen had stuck around a little longer?

 6.   It’ll make you ask yourself, What if this had happened to me??  Could I have dealt?

 5.  You will never look at a stuffed mushroom in quite the same way.

 4.  Pithy, witty Jane Austen quotes are peppered through the book.  Test your memory.

 3.  Hottie nerd.  Just sayin.’

 2. You’ll feel an inexplicable urge to karaoke.  Or find a man with an accent.  Or both!

 1.  You’ll want to start a Sean MacInnes Fan Club!  (For the uninitiated, he is the MIK…or Man-in-a-Kilt).

Have one of your own?  I’d love to hear it!  Leave me a comment!

  1. It’s the next best thing if you don’t have your own special Jane Austen channeling journal!

  2. #5 did it for me! :)

      Does that mean #5 piqued your interest enough to read it, or #5 is why you loved it? 😉

  3. May I please be the first member of the Sean MacInnes Fan Club? You know I get weak in the knees just hearing his name! 😉
