Austen in August
Austen in August is celebrating all things Jane Austen. The logo is absolutely wonderful and so Austen. For more information on what is going on, go to The Book Rat who is hosting. I will be on holiday mid-August so there should be ample time to read Austen, as well as my Classic Club read.
This is the first time I am joining and I will read Mansfield Park. I have read all the others, except the Juvenilia, so it is a suitable challenge. My favourite books by Austen are Pride and Prejudice and Northanger Abbey. I am curious if Mansfield Park will be able to push them down the steps?
I recently visited an exhibition with clothes from Austen movies and tv-series. It was delightful to walk around and even recognise some of the clothes. Mostly from Pride and Prejudice.
