Coming Soon... Austen in August

I am just going to put this down right here....

It is a fun and bookish challenge for the month of August.

Are you tempted to join me?

If you are you can go and sign up here!

I will be doing a giveaway for the challenge over on the host's page in the neighborhood of August 9th.  I hope you will join me in read something Austen for the month of August.  It can be a novel of her's or a biography.  It can be fan fiction and there is a LOT of fan fiction out there!

I have no idea what I will finish but I will read something from Austen every day for the month of August.  If you are joining in please feel free to let me know in the comments below.

I have a few books lined up already...

Just a few to choose from as I move through the month.  The bottom collection is my daughter's but I might need to pick one of those up for me at some point.  She leaves for college next year and I know she won't be leaving it with me.  ;)

Unequal Affections is actually written by my husband's cousin and is a huge favorite of my daughter's and her friends.  It is a fantastic fan fiction novel and Austenesque in every way.

Do you have a favorite fan fiction from the world of all things Austen you would care to share with us?

Again... leave a comment below and share it with us!


  1. I have a terrible confession to make: I've never read any Austen. I downloaded both Pride & Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility FOUR YEARS ago thinking I'd rectify that situation. I may even have started P & P. But that's it. I find a number of the characters (from the movies) insufferable, and I'm not sure I could stand reading them. Maybe, once I finish up the other hundred unread books on the kindle...

  2. The Claire Tomalin biography is wonderful - I hope you have a chance to read it!
