So I know I just said I wouldn’t be doing a lot of New Year’s Resolutions, but then I found out this year is the 200th anniversary of the publication of Pride and Prejudice. And THEN I found out that austenprose.com is having a Pride & Prejudice Bicentenary Challenge, I couldn’t resist!
The goal is to read as many Jane Austen books/movie adaptations/spinoffs/prequels/sequels as you can during the year. You can hop in at a bunch of different levels. Don’t want to commit overly? Be a neophyte and read/watch 1-4. Want more of a challenge? Become a disciple and read/watch 5-8. Or prove your Austen Aficionada status with 9-12 books/movies in 2013.
As the proud owner of 9 copies of Pride & Prejudice(see below for an old picture when I only had a measly 7 copies..), I will be satisfied with no less than Aficionada status. So 9-12 books here I come!
I also kind of wanted to read the entire Sherlock Holmes canon…but that might be a little too ambitious now..
