Austen in August #AustenInAugustRBR Northanger Abbey #CBAM2017


I've been looking forward to this all summer! I think it's time for some Jane in my life again. How about you? My friend, Adam, Mr. Roof Beam Reader is hosting his FIFTH year of Austen in August. How awesome is that? Also, he appropriately planned Northanger Abbey for the August Classic Book of the Month read-along. I have not read NA yet so it works out great!


My other plans for Austen in August...


I recently acquired Pride and Prejudice for free on audio. I'm a big lover of audio books. I mostly listen when I drive and since my sons will be going back to school this coming Monday, I'm going to be doing a lot of driving with school drop off/pick up, football practice, music lessons. Looking forward to listening to P & P which will be a reread for me.

Note: These are the exact covers of my editions of Jane Austen's books (the fab five). I got them from Book of the Month Club years ago. I'm so glad I did!





I'm also going to be reading a bit from these three books. I won't have time to read them all entirely, as I have tons of other reading obligations this month, but I will read from them and post some commentary here on the blog on what I read/discovered.


Again, I couldn't be more excited! What can I say...I love Jane!

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

  1. I'm revisiting Jane's short stories this year. I've just finished Lady Susan which means I can now watch Love & Friendship :-)

    Happy Austen in August!

  2. I couldn't decide if I wanted to join in with this but decided I really need the rest of the month to concentrate on reading what's on my shelves. Enjoy!

  3. I, too, love audiobooks though I don't think I've ever listened to an Austen novel on audio. Hey, that could be a new challenge for me. Here is my first review for Austen in August Challenge. I'd be honored if you would take a peek: Longbourn
