Welcome.  I read what I want and when I want, and don't write to a target audience. If we share the love for the same genre or can expand each others interests, I hope that you will follow me.

Austen in August Announcement Post


I am so excited to participate in "Austen in August".  I have enjoyed Jane Austen's work in the past, but still have several of her books to read.  Plus, this is social and you know that I am ever so social.


The Goal: To read as many of Jane Austen’s works (finished or unfinished) as you want or are able to, during the month of August.  Biographies, audiobooks, spin-offs, and re-reads also count.  I will post throughout the month on different subjects, as well as with my own reviews of the Austen books I finish.  We will be offering giveaways, guest posts, and other shenanigans, all of which are meant to inspire a great, interactive event.


If you are going to participate, you can read any of Jane Austen’s novels, a biography about her, or any contemporary re-imaginings (such as Austenland or The Jane Austen Book Club, for example). All posts will help you qualify for prizes, which I’ll explain in a later post!



We will be using hashatag #AustenInAugustRBR


A big thank you to Roof Beam Reader for hosting.  For more details, visit the sign-up post.


What I will be reading:  I will be reading Emma for sure.  I have a beautiful penguin clothbound classic and can't wait to crack it open.  Beyond that, I am not sure,
