Everything Austen Challenge, R U up for it?

The Everything Austen Challenge will run for six months (July 1, 2009 – January 1, 2010)! All you need to do is pick out what six Austen-themed things you want to finish to complete the challenge and sign up here

This is exactly what I was looking for and I did not even know it. I recently went on an expedition to the library and I talked to someone about Jane Austen because believe it or not I have never read any of her novels or seen any of the movies. Scary right? My problem was I did not know where to start with all the novels. There was multiple versions, some not by her, and edited in many different ways. It got so confusing that I put it on the back burner for later. Then low and behold Ms. Lucy over at Enchanted by Josephine posted about her entry into the contest, so I am going for it!

Here are my six: Pride & Prejudice, Sense & Sensibility, and Emma. Since all three books also have a movie based off of them, my choice is three books and three movies


  1. Hey!! so happy you'll be part of this one too! Another thing we can talk about together!

  2. I am reading Pride and Prejudice now. Actually liking it and not finding it to be as difficult as I had imagined.

  3. Still have not started but I have no expectations. Why did you think it was going to be a hard read? I am glad you like it hopefully I will like them as much as Ms. Lucy too.
