[Podcast Appearance] AntmanVs Austen House Books
I hope the new year has been treating you well. I’ve been keeping busy with book research and running my online bookstore. Last week, I took a morning off to make an appearance on the AntmanVs podcast. It was super fun. Details are at the link!

Bookish Christmas gifts are the best!
My Evening Plans….
…shall look something like this.
Shopping for the Bookworm: Austen House Books Edition
Yes, that is correct. I am featuring my own business. It occurred to me that I haven’t done one of these (Shopping for the Bookworm) posts in…well, a long time. I’ve decided to resurrect the series by starting with my own little online bookstore.
We have a small-ish (500+ books, some of which we have yet to list), but diverse and interesting catalog. Shipping is available US-wide. Local delivery in Columbus is also available.
As ever, thanks for indulging me!
Introducing Austen House Books
I’m officially a bookstore owner! Well, technically, I have been since June when I registered my business and did a few local pop-up events. Somehow, (finally) launching a website makes it seem real-real, you know? We did that on Monday.
Currently, we ship across the US and offer local (Columbus, OH) pick-up. New books are being added every day this week. After that, it will be weekly.
Our selection is hand-picked and often very eclectic. Please check us out the next time you need (or just really, really want) a cool book. And feel free to spread the word to any bookworms you know! Thank you!
Daily Diversion #458: The Little Webster
Another birthday gift fromThe Chef: my very own copy of the Little Webster (Liliput Dictionary). This version doesn’t contain a copyright date, but the inscription on the back is from 1929.
For perspective: the framed painting is 4″ x 5″, the Nancy Drew book is 2 3/4″ x 3 1/4″, and the dictionary comes in at 1 1/2″ x 2″.
If you know me at all well, you’ll understand how thoughtful this gift is…truly one of the best things anyone has ever given me.
Daily Diversion #457: New Beginnings
Austen House Books. There is a story here. I’ll share it…soon.
