Welcome to Austen in August! This reading event is hosted by Adam at Roof Beam Reader. You can learn more about the event (AND SIGN UP) here.

I hosted this event on Adam’s behalf last year at my old blog, Lost Generation Reader. As much as I loved temporarily taking the reigns, I’m very happy to have Adam back. It’s going to be a wonderful month of reading, giveaways, and sharing Austen-related stories/thoughts/etc. I will be hosting a giveaway August 13-17, so look for that when the time comes.

What’s that, you say? A whole month of Austen!?

YES.

My Austen in August Reads:
Persuasion by Jane Austen (Reread)
Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen (Reread)
A Jane Austen Education by William Deresiewicz
Jane’s Fame: How Jane Austen Conquered the World by Claire Harman

I will also be re-watching The Lizzie Bennet Diaries… because Austen. I might even get really crazy and watch some Austen adaptations I haven’t seen yet. It’s not like I have a novel to edit or anything. #priorities

  1. This is great! I was also thinking of rereading Persuasion but I finally decided on Mansfield Park. Also, I’ve wanted to read A Jane Austen Education, so I can’t wait to see what you think about it πŸ™‚
