Hi, Muse - I have soooo many books on my TBR pile, I may need to pass on the Austen challenge this year, but I loved particpating in it last year! Very worthwhile. Have you read The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen by Syrie James? I read it for the Austen chall. and loved it -- a charming and elegant book, one of my favs from 2009.

I'd be cheating if I entered the challenge since as a rule I read everything that says Jane Austen.
Warm regards,

I hadn't heard of this challenge- there are so many Austen books out there it wouldn't be hard to do. I'll have to see if I can add more to my TBR pile.

This looks like a really fun challenge - I would love to join it except that I have already committed myself to too many challenges. Good luck!

Since I did not finish the 2009 Austen challenge I have no business joining this one. Have fun and enjoy :)

I am so excited about this challenge! I needed a good excuse to read some more Austen-esque novels this year, so I am dedicating my winter to this challenge (mid-year). Cant wait to start!
Happy Reading.
