Yes, I’m joining another challenge. I just couldn’t resist the Everything Austen Challenge being hosted by Stephanie over at Stephanie’s Written Word, which I think is going to be loads of fun. Not only can you read books but you can watch movies too. In addition, it can be even be one of the many sequels that have been written. What could be better! I love it too because I’ll be able to use the books I read for my Classics Challenge as well. Yahooooooo.
Ok, here is the down & dirty on the challenge…
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.
My six are…
- Mr Darcy, Vampyre by Amanda Grange
- The Jane Austen Book Club by Karen Joy Fowler along with the movie
- Lost in Austen (movie) – This is one of my favorite movies!
- Pemberly by the Sea by Abigail Reynolds
- Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen along with the movie
- And one other of the Austen novels-haven’t decided yet
So, there you have it. I’m looking forward to reading a few of these as they’ve been on my shelves for ages. Now make sure to head on over here and check out the details more and sign up!
So glad you are signing up!!

Good luck with this challenge. I have yet to read a Jane Austen book, so I shall bow out of this one.
Good luck with the challenge!
This will be a fun challenge! I listened to The Jane Austen Book Club a few years ago and enjoyed it a lot. My husband got me the movie for Christmas one year – it's time to watch it again!
What a fun challenge! Anything Jane Austen is a good thing in my book!
I didn't like the Jane Austen Book Club, but I'm very curious to see your review of Mr. Darcy, Vampyre!
So fun. I really should do this challenge, too. Love Jane Austen 🙂
Yeah, we can do the madness together!!! Have fun!

*yay* it's going to be fun!
I will think about this one Dar 🙂 I am not so sure!
Alice Teh says
This one sounds fun! I would like to partipate. 🙂
Finally a challenge that I can resist! 🙂 The only ones I've read are The Jane Austen Book Club and P&P. I enjoyed both of the movies as well–maybe even more than the book? Have fun!
Thanks to all who have wished me good luck with this one. And to those who have joined up I think we're going to have a lot of fun with this challenge. I already have a P&P movie to watch this weekend.
lol Trish-you're too funny. I'm not too good at resisting some challenges.
Glad to see you're doing this one, too! I haven't chosen the books/movies yet, but hopefully I'll get to that soon. Good luck!
