Borrowing Good News...

I found this via A Reader's Journal, I have exciting news for all Austen fans :) Masterpiece Theatre is going to broadcast all six of Austen's novels in 2008! Isn't that absolutely thrilling???? They also say they're going to broadcast a brand new "drama" based on her life. Be sure to enter the contest to win a free 6-in-1 collection of Austen novels. They're giving away 100 copies. To enter, just sign up for their newsletter. Not only will they let you know when the shows are airing, you might just win a free book!

Mansfield Park
Northanger Abbey
Pride and Prejudice
Sense and Sensibility

Anyone else see in this the potential for a great challenge?

I know I probably shouldn't admit this...but I've never read a single Jane Austen book. I know, I know...unbelievable! It's really not for lack of wanting to. There's just soooooo much out there waiting to be read. Thanks for sharing this news though...this may be just the kick in the pants I need to finally pick up some of these classics.

Debi, you should at least watch Austen. I think a movie or two might convince you to give her a try. Or not. :) But the movies should be a lot of fun.

Did you see Cheryl Klien's Jane Austen reading calendar a couple months back? I think I'm going to try and do that next year... ha... I wish we got PBS, though. I'll just have to keep an eye out for the DVDs, I suppose.

Thanks for visiting my fall book list, and thanks for this info. How exciting!

How exciting! I think I would be up for a challenge - maybe a open one - like the Cardathon? Please let me know!!!
