Format: Library Binding
I thought it was interesting how the author of this biography made clear the parts of Jane Austen's work that were partly autobiographical. Good use of letters and illustrations. Great for older students or (of course) anyone interested in Jane Austen.

Format: Library Binding
This is a nicely illustrated and very basic life of Jane Austen, apparently intended for young adults. (I think that any adult who automatically turns up their nose at YA books is a fool.) Sidebars include accounts of major personalities and events, such as the Prince Regent and Napoleon. I don't consider it to be nearly as good as Carol Shield's Jane Austen: A Life (Penguin Lives), which is about the same length, but it is simpler, quicker read and the reader may prefer an illustrated biography. It includes a bibliography, notes, and index, and a list of a few major websites. A somewhat similar book, although it isn't considered a juvenile, is Marghanita Laski's Jane Austen (Literary Lives Series). This has a little more 'external' information about JA's life, including more dates. It also has a lot of contemporary and near-contemporary pictures of places associated with her.
