For all of us who have read (and enjoyed) Jane Austen--in all her literary splendor--we can still find ways to reconnect with her life and legacy! Here's one of the more tangible ways to experience her life is by touring the place she lived for 8 years:

Jane Austen House

You'll see the writing desk, where she wrote Pride and Prejudice (one of her most beloved, and frequently studied novels). You'll also see a handwritten letters as well as other personal items. According to Ferne Arfin: "A rotating selection of Jane Austen's letters and other personal objects is displayed in temperature and humidity controlled drawers that visitors can examine. On the day I visited, the letter being displayed described Jane's excitement on receiving her first copies of Pride and Prejudice."

Jane Austen's House Museum is on my list of places to visit. Which literary spots are on your list? And, which famous literary places have you already visited (and enjoyed)? I'd love to hear about your adventures with literary spots around the world!!
