Jane Austen Challenge

I just stumbled across this reading challenge:  To read Jane Austen's books, and those, by other authors, who are written as prequels, sequels etc. to any of Austen's novels.  Basically to get to know Jane Austen's writing universe.



Rules:

  • Anyone can participate.
  • Challenge books can overlap with other challenges.
  • Any format counts: bound book, e-book (check online for free downloads of J.A’s copyright-free books), audio book, or any other thing you can think of.
  • Challenge runs January 1st 2010—December 31 2010.
  • You can change which level you read

Levels:
  • Newbie 2 books by J. Austen, 2 re-writes, prequels, sequels, or spoofs (by other authors)
  • Lover 4 books by J. Austen, 4 re-writes, prequels, sequels, or spoofs (by other authors)
  • Fanatic 6+ books by J. Austen, 5+ re-writes, prequels, sequels, or 
  • spoofs (by other authors).

I'm going for the Lover level, and my  reading plan looks like this: 
  • Pride and Prejudice (J.A.)
  • Sense and Sensibility (J.A.)
  • Emma (J.A.)
  • Northanger Abbey (J.A.)
  • Mr Darcy's Dilemma (Diana Birchall)
I'll complete my list when I've read up on the prequels etc written.
