The Jane Austen Challenge

If I did this right.... Everything Austen  over on Stephanie's Written Word  blog and I heard about this from someone on Book Blog on,  the author of the blog has challenged Austen lovers to six solid months of Jane Austen themed things. 
I am going to do this.  Yes I am going to do this.

Okay so my 6 things are....  

  1. Read Mansfield Park and do a comparative of the movies with the book
  2. Read The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen by Syrie James (which has been in my to read pile for almost a year)
  3. Review Becoming Jane the movie
  4. Locate and read Mr. Darcy Vampyre (how did I not know about this book?)
  5. Review the men in Austen's novels (that will be a tall order)
  6. The Jane Austen Book Club.... do a review and comparative of the book and movie with a twist... 
And I will add one or two extra items just incase I have a difficult time....   Locate and read a copy of Jane Austen in Boca.
Locate and read one of the other Jane Austen spin offs. Which of course will have a review.  
Locate and review a copy of Bride and Prejudice. 
Locate and review a copy of Clueless (it's been 12 years since I saw that film)

The challenge starts tomorrow July 1 2009 and runs until Jan. 1 2010. 
Wish me luck.
