There are a lot of bloggers out there doing different reading challenges this year. From reading the Bible in 90 days to reading 52 books in a year. These challenges are just too challenging for me. I love to read and I usually try to read two books at a time.Typically I read a fiction and a non-fiction together. The fiction book is for evenings and the non-fiction I read in the mornings after reading my Bible, if I have time before the kids get up. But to finish a book a week, no way! But then Debra, over at Footprints in the Butter offered a new challenge. Read SEVEN books in a year! But not just any seven but Jane Austen's seven! Oh yeah, now we're talking! I've wanted to read these for quite awhile but just kept getting sucked into other books before I could get to these. I don't know that I'll get to all of them, but hopefully this year I'll mark at least some of her books off my list of books to read.
I placed Sense and Sensibility on hold with my Bookmobile, but then it snowed and the Bookmobile only rides thru once a month so I started another book. Then I stumbled on this Jane Austen website! I can actually read her books online for FREE! I'm in the middle of a book right now and trying to finish up the movie EMMA by Masterpiece Classics, but as soon as I'm done, this will be where I spend my evenings. My only question is what kind of tea should I have? :)
