Austen in August Announcement
Having finally completed Anna Karenina, albeit just a bit late, I have decided in August to participate in the Austen in August Reading Event, hosted by Roof Beam Reader. After failing to make my last three Anna Karenina posts in a timely way, you’d think I would back off from participating in reading events for a bit, but I saw this one and I just couldn’t resist. The good news is that its a fairly loose structure, and I think I can manage at least two Jane Austen novels, even if August is incredibly busy.
According to the Roof Beam Reader,
“…the goal is to read as many of Jane Austen’s novels as you want/are able, during the month of August. Biographies and re-reads also count. “
So, I’m in for the following books:
Emma (this one is on my Summer Reading Challenge list…that’s right…bonus)
Sense and Sensibility
A Jane Austen Education by William Deresiewicz
Possibly Northanger Abbey
