Just Couldn't Resist...Everything Austen Challenge




The Everything Austen Challenge is being hosted by Stephanie from Stephanie's Written Word. It will run for six months (July 1, 2009 – January 1, 2010)!

Another Challenge? How can I possibly keep up with all this reading?!

Like Jenny of Jenny Loves To Read, I’ve seen this challenge on many of my favourite blogs…I just couldn’t resist!

The details! 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.’


On to my picks:


Northanger Abbey

Lady Susan

Sense and Sensibility

The Watsons

Persuasion


Sandition

(I just might throw this extra one just for the fun: The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen:)

Will you join?

I'm definitely in! Does making 6 Austen era garments whilst watching Austen movies count? Because I already have that on my to-do list for the next 6 months!

I am in as well.... have never read Austen and am starting to feel that I can not call myself a true "Bookie" without this piece on my resume.... LOL

You are too kind to me! I just re-read Northanger Abbey last year. You have to see the Masterpiece Theater version after you read the book. Awesome! Everything they do is pretty good actually.

Yea! I'm so glad you're joining up!
