My first challenge! I almost hate to say this but as of this date…. I have never read Jane Austen. It’s true. So seeing this challenge actually fulfills a long time goal for me, which is to get a little time with this author.
The challenge is hosted by Stephanies Written Word. We have from July 1, 2009 to January 1, 2010. We are to read or watch 6 Austen related books or movies. See Stephanie’s site for more information.
Here is my plan of attack:
I tried to include a mix here of her original works, some of the new works… and a couple movies. I’ll cross off from this list as I accomplish each read… er…. movie… uhhhh…. you get the point! Can’t wait to experience Austen!
Jane Austen (16 December 1775 – 18 July 1817) was an English novelist whose realism, biting social commentary and masterful use of free indirect speech, burlesque, and irony have earned her a place as one of the most widely read and most beloved writers in English literature.
