I am joining a new challenge. This one is so much fun, I don't think the word challenge even applies! Stephanie from Stephanie's Written Word is hosting the Everything Austen Challenge. And it is, of course, all about Jane!
Here's the deal: from July 1 to January 1 we need to read or watch six things that have to do with Jane Austen: books, book spin-offs, movies, movie spin-offs. All are allowed. How fun is that?
We are supposed to make a list of the six books or movies we're going to read or watch. I am stating right here: My list is tentative, I am not committing to these specific items. Why? Because when I read reviews or hear talk of something great that's not on this list, I want the flexibility to switch to that other great thing.
My Maybe List
1. Lady Susan (because I've never read it)
2. One of the big six on audio (probably Sense and Sensibility because I usually pick P&P)
3. A spin-off of Pride and Prejudice (Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife because I think I own it)
4. A spoof of Pride and Prejudice (Pride, Prejudice, & Zombies because I own it)
5. Pride and Prejudice DVD with Colin Firth (because . . . need I say more?)
6. Austen inspired (Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict because the first Rigler book was fun)
If you're a Jane Austen fan or if you'd like an excuse to reread the books or see the movies, head on over the Stephanie's blog and sign up! We will be discussing on Twitter! And there will be prizes. Don't miss out!
