The Jane Austen Handbook

Currently reading this delightful book that starts each section off with a quote from a Jane Austen novel and shows how to net purses, ride sidesaddle, play cards, become engaged, and all the other important things a Regency Lady should know.

In other Regency news, my annual start of the year meeting for the reenactment group I am part of will be next weekend, I will be sure to report back what I've learned. And I am also being a resourceful and economical Regency lady and cutting down some of my old dresses to fit my sister who is 17 years my junior. How is that for clever?
