England Reveals New Jane Austen 10 Pound Note: Critical Linking, July 20, 2017

Sponsored by JT McCormick, the CEO of Book In A Box and author of I Got There


The Telegraph notes that Austen “will be the only woman – apart from the Queen – to be featured on an English bank note, following the withdrawal of the old £5 notes, which featured Elizabeth Fry, in May.” (The five-pound note now features Winston Churchill.)

England, you now have Jane Austen on your money!

Beyond Whole Foods, IMDB, Box Office Mojo, Goodreads, and your mind, Amazon also now owns a whole lot of fictional murdered British people: the company has purchased the rights to a bulk of material by late mystery master Agatha Christie. As of now, the only project being publicized is Ordeal By Innocence, an adaptation of the novel (which already comprised a season of Agatha Christie’s Marple and was made into a Donald Sutherland/Christopher Plummer-starring film in 1985), with Bill Nighy, Catherine Keener, Alice Eve, Ella Purnell and Matthew Goode already cast.

A+ will watch.
