So if you didn’t know already, Jane Austen is my favorite author. In fact my top two favorite books of all time (Pride and Prejudice and Persuasion) were both written by her. The year 2013 marks the 200th anniversary of Pride and Prejudice! It’s no surprise that Austen’s novels are still popular and relevant 200 years later. She wrote stories filled with themes that are relevant no matter what time period you live in. She is, in one word, timeless.
To mark this anniversary, Austenprose is hosting the Pride and Prejudice bicentenary challenge and I’m happy to announce my participation! I’m signing up at the “aficionada” level which requires I read/watch 9-12 books/movies relating to Pride and Prejudice. It’s safe to say that I’m going to blow through this challenge.
