Jane Austen with an iPod

Over at the Jane Austen Addict Blog, Laurie (Viera Rigler), author of Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict (which I've read and thought was decent but could have been more detailed in characterizations) made a post last month of her new novel.

The cover (a lovely painted picture) on Ms. Rigler's new novel, Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict, is posted here on on the JA Addict Blog. You have to see it - a lady in a delicate, pure white spotted muslin gown accessorized by a white iPod. Brilliant!

(I just clicked over to Amazon and watched the video trailer for the book - Wow! I may just have to order a copy. It looks very interesting. Time travel and Regency - fabulous!)

.... I wonder if Jane Austen had really had an iPod, what would she have on it? Mozart? Bach? Vivaldi? Handel? And what would have been her favorite? What music would she have had playing in her head while writing of Lizzy in the Lake Country? Or Catherine journeying to Northanger Abbey?
