Welcome to Austen in August! This reading event is being hosted by Adam at Roof Beam Reader. Adam was the first book blogger I started following when I began my blogging journey a couple years ago. He has hosted and participated in several reading events. I’m excited to read along with him and other blogging friends for my first reading event.
I became most interested in Jane Austen when I visited her home in Chawton as well as her museum in Bath in 2010. Part of my class assignment was to write a travel essay, and I wrote mine on Austen. I also had my creative work set in Bath. As much as I love her personal story, I have only read Pride & Prejudice and Sense & Sensibility. I hope to read as much Austen as possible this month.
I will write a review for each book as well as additional posts about Austen and my Austen-related England travels, including pictures. I will also be hosting a giveaway August 17-20. The giveaway will include some Austen swag that I picked up in England as well as an Austen book of choice. Details will be given on August 17, so be sure to check back.
