Austen Mini-Challenge

Here's the last of the current batch of challenges that I'm joining for 2008.. for now anyway.
The goal of this challenge is to read and/or watch at least two Jane Austen novels/movies in 2008.

This one shouldn't be too hard. I usually watch the BBC dramatization of Pride and Prejudice at least once a year and I'm pretty sure I can manage at least one more book or movie. I'd actually like to reread all of her books and other writings, as it's been a long time since I first read them, but I'm not sure I'll get to all of them this year. It would be a fun project though. I also look forward to seeing some of the newer TV adaptations. Hopefully I'll be able to lay my hands on some of those as well. I never mind spending time with Jane!

  3. Only two? I might be able to squeeze this one in because I'm already planning to read an Austen book next year . . . And then if I see the movie version too? Hmmm . . .

  4. JoAnn- Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope you had a lovely Christmas too!

    Nymeth- I've been meaning to reread some Austen so I couldn't resist this one.

    Wendy- Exactly! Only 2 makes it very doable. You could always read one of the short Hesperus Press Austen titles. ;)
