I have never read Jane Austen. I’m dead serious. I don’t think that’s very good of me, do you? I figured the best (and most fun way) to get myself to read them would be to do a challenge. So here you go.
I don’t know if there is already another J.A. Challenge out there somewhere, but I’m creating one. Sign up in the comments and leave your link, and pick the button you’d like. Don’t forget to link back to this post!
(This beautiful image is by olde.fashioned)
--Anyone can participate. Bloggers: leave a link to your challenge in the comments. Non-bloggers, leave your name (and e-mail if you like)
**Newbie 2 books by J. Austen, 2 re-writes, prequels, sequels, or spoofs (by other authors)
**Lover 4 books by J. Austen, 4 re-writes, prequels, sequels, or spoofs (by other authors)
** Fanatic 6+ books by J. Austen, 5+ re-writes, prequels, sequels, or spoofs (by other authors)
--Challenge books can overlap with other challenges.
--Any format counts: bound book, e-book (check online for free downloads of J.A’s copyright-free books), audio book, or any other thing you can think of.
--Challenge runs January 1st 2010—December 31 2010.
--You can change which level you read!
Here is my list: I’m going for the Lover level, and I’ll cross each off or link the reviews as I go
- (J.A) Pride and Prejudice
- (J.A) Sense and Sensibility
- (J.A) Emma
- (J.A) Northanger Abbey
- Re-write: Darcy’s Voyage
- Spoof: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies –the dawn of the dreadfuls

- Sense and Sensibility and Seamonsters
Now pick a button from above and post it on your blog somewhere. Have fun!
