Jane Austen Jigsaw Puzzle

"Oh Mary! ... find some useful employment!" ~ Mrs Bennet, Pride and Prejudice


Jane Austen's 500-piece 18" x 14" jigsaw puzzle looks to me like one heck of useful entertainment. The moment I saw it on a shelf by the check out counter of Asia Books, I decided it was mine even before I read the blurb -

"Settle down for a cozy afternoon with this literary-minded puzzle. Cleverly packaged in a booklike box... it features illustrations from the Regency Era paired with quotes from Jane Austen's beloved novels."


Alas! I have had the misfortune of not having touched this most prized possession since I bought it last year. Therefore this is one good reason to look forward to rainy afternoons at home on that russet hardwood dining table. If only I were home.

  7. Getting busy with such a hobby like solving a jigsaw puzzle can eat up all your time. once you start it, you want to get it done asap. i can only do around 20 pieces ... quite big ones.

  17. I love puzzles! I solve 1000-piece jigsaws and glad to know my daughter got the interest. That looks nice, and easy.... well except for that pink part. It's hard when all you got are pieces of same color. I also still have one 1000-piece puzzle here, chocolates!
