The Pride and Prejudice Read A Long

I feel like I must be the last official English person never to have read a Jane Austen book. I hold my head down in shame! How can I call myself British!

Anyway, Mee over at Bookie Mee has come to my rescue and organised a Pride and Prejudice Read A Long for all the first timers during the month of February.I had planned to read some of Jane Austen's books this year for the Awesome Author challenge, so I thought the read a long would be ideal for me.

The invitation to join the read a long is open to everyone, so if you haven't read it do come and join in.

Mee has organised a reading schedule and I think I will definitely follow it. Here are the details.

week 1: chapter 1-17 (finish by 7 Feb)
week 2: chapter 18-34 (finish by 14 Feb)
week 3: chapter 35-47 (finish by 21 Feb)
week 4: chapter 48-61 (finish by 28 Feb)

If you want to join in, then click on Bookie Mee above and it will take you right to the sign up post.

  5. Mee - I am enjoying this so far. Up to chapter 5.

    With Carmen and Petty Witter that makes three of us Brits who haven't read it. How bad is that!

    Blodeuedd - I am wondering whether it differs in Swedish.

  6. Good luck with the read-along! I've read Pride and Prejudice a couple of times, but I haven't read any other Jane Austen books, so I still feel like I have catching up to do.

  7. It is true. You are officially the last English person to read Austen. :) Thanks goodness for this opportuntiy so you can hold your head up again! Sounds like great fun. Northanger Abbey is my favorite Austen - a great spoof on all things gothic. Happy reading!

  10. I really ought to try to read this again but I just have problems with Jane Austen.

  11. Oh yes, you must remedy this! I haven't read P&P yet as I was sort of putting it off after I went through the other Austen novels but this is so tempting! I'll have to think about it a bit and see if I can keep up with the schedule before I join in. Anyway, have tons of fun!
