I Caved: The Everything Austen Challenge

So you might have heard that Stephanie of Stephanie's Written Word is hosting the Everything Austen Challenge. All you have to do to participate is commit to six Austen-themed things (such as Austen novels, Austen sequels, movies about Austen books, movies/books about Austen's life, and yes, those zombie/vampire Austen books) from July 1, 2009, to January 1, 2010. Oh, and there will be prizes!

Serena and I plan to watch a couple of movies together (Colin Firth, here I come!), and I'll throw some bookish stuff in there, too. I'm not committing to any particular book or movie right now; I'll probably play this challenge by ear.

you sound like me with this whole playing the challenge close to the vest thing.

Good luck!

I could always watch the movies...again! ;)
But I'd like to red the books since I have only read P&P

Jo-Jo said...

Well if you can watch movies I might be able to do this one too. I will have to think about it! lol
Like I need another challenge!

I've caved too. I just heard about the Austen challenge here. I've already read two Austen sequels. I would love to join. I'm joining; Ok? Thanks.

May I use your Austen as a badge or should I find one?

Alyce said...

Good luck with the challenge. It looks like a lot of fun!

I think I might have to join this challenge. Although...I have to update the WWII one.

Gee thanks! I needed another challenge like a hole in the head. But since I've been considering hosting an Austen challenge for months now (but never doing more than seeing if people would be interested), I have to sign up for this one.

Staci said...

I caved too!! Doing my post tomorrow..couldn't resist this challenge!!

bkclubcare said...

I just cannot do another challenge! But I will blog about it and tell my Austen-lover friends...

Dar said...

I caved as well. I'll be getting my post up this week.

I have been terrible with the challenges I signed up for this year (note: NO books read for War Thru the Generations!), and worse than terrible about the challenge I'm hosting (LT Authors).

I'll definitely watch some films, and I read Laurie Viera Rigler's new RUDE AWAKENINGS OF A JANE AUSTEN ADDICT ... my resolve is weakening ...

Thanks everyone! I still don't have a list for the challenge, but I did get my copy of Pride Prejudice and Zombies in the mail today!

Tea: It's not my badge, but you can find it at Stephanie's Written Word.
