Everything Austen Challenge II


Everything Austen ChallengeJust as the  All About the Brontës Challenge is ending, I am embarking on a new reading challenge: the Everything Austen Challenge. Regular readers know I love Jane Austen, and I’m looking forward to completing this challenge. In order to complete the challenge, which runs from July 1, 2010 to January 1, 2011, readers must choose six Austen-themed things to complete for the challenge—books, movies, and even crafts count.

The six things I have chosen are the following:

I will blog reviews of each of these Austen-related items, even though I don’t usually blog movie reviews.

  1. Great selection of Austen books and movies Dana. Have fun! I look forward to reading your reviews

    1. Thanks, Laurel Ann. And thanks for the copy of Persuasion. I suppose it's natural the older I get that I find myself related much more to Anne Elliot than any other Austen heroine. Truth is, I have a good ten years on Anne, too.

  2. Glad to see you are joining in on this one! I am looking forward to reading Sense & Sensibility too. Have fun!

    1. I wasn't sure I would at first because I've already re-read Pride and Prejudice this year, but I looked around and discovered I had enough stuff to complete the challenge. I was already interested in The Three Weissmanns of Westport after hearing a podcast interview with the author, and then watching Sense and Sensibility again last week reminded me how much I love, love, love that story. The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen was already on my summer reading radar. You have fun, too. What else are you going to read?

    1. You should join the challenge. You can read the four other books and maybe pick two movie versions to watch?? It's fun!

  3. Hi Dana
