as a tribute to bloggers and readers everywhere who are celebrating Austen in August, i shall be sharing this month some snippets from some of my favorite novels by Jane Austen plus a couple of variations on her work by other authors. 
“The person of whom I speak is a gentleman, and a stranger.” Mrs. Bennet’s eyes sparkled. “A gentleman and a stranger! It is Mr. Bingley, I am sure! Well, I am sure I shall be extremely glad to see Mr. Bingley. But—good Lord! how unlucky! There is not a bit of fish to be got to-day. Lydia, my love, ring the bell—I must speak to Hill this moment.”
“It is not Mr. Bingley,” said her husband; “it is a person whom I never saw in the whole course of my life.”
 This roused a general astonishment; and he had the pleasure of being eagerly questioned by his wife and his five daughters at once.
