Roof Beam Reader is hosting “Austen in August” again this year. I’ve done it before, but not consistently, and I always feel bad when I don’t participate. Now that I’ve been looking at my gorgeous copy of Persuasion languishing on my bookshelf for a couple years now… I’m in. I promised I’d do it if he hosted it again, and I mean what I say. So this August, I’m going to *finally* read Persuasion. Also, I have a contemporary reimagining or spin off from Pride and Prejudice that might be fun to read this month too.
Is there something by Austen that you’ve been looking forward to reading? Or maybe you’d like to revisit a favorite? Then you may want to join in this event as well.
