7 Weeks of Jane Austen… Info

 

So I once again have some humongous plan in the works. And I am determined it is going to work *mwahahahahahaaa*

 

And what is this diabolical plan?

 

*Drum roll*

 

7_Weeks_of_Jane_Austen1337682518

In August and September I am planning on doing a post a day on Austen.

 

6 weeks will be dedicated to each of Jane Austen’s major works and then the 7th week will be all things Austen.

 

Sounds fun yeah?

 

And why do you need our help? I hear you ask…

 

Well you see, 7 weeks of reading nothing but ‘me’ on the subject of Jane Austen…ouch. But 7 weeks reading a mixture. Cool!

 

So this is a request for some guest posts Smile

 

You know you want to.

 

You can write about anything Austen related you like.

  • Modern spins on the novels
  • Character rants or mushy happy post
  • Favourite/least favourite characters

Tell us about it Smile

 

The order of the weeks is going to be decided by the publication dates of the major novels.

 

So

Week 1 – Sense and Sensibility

Week 2 – Pride and Prejudice

Week 3 – Mansfield Park

Week 4 – Emma

Week 5 - Northanger Abbey

Week 6 – Persuasion

Week 7 – All things Austen

 

Would you like to be involved?

 

Great!

  2. I just signed on for Persuasion week. It's my favorite and, I think, totally underrated. I'm really looking forward to it!

  3. My teen daughter just finished reading (and really enjoyed!) an eBook called Hear by Jacqueline Abelson. Great plot, interesting characters and a real message of self– empowerment. Here’s the link:
