Reading Austen In August Announcement Post

Janhvi and I have decided to join Adam @ Roof Beam Reader's Austen In August Reading Event, the main goal of which is to read any Jane Austen literature. 

The books that we plan on reading are-

Janhvi: Northanger Abbey

Sarika: Emma and Pride and Prejudice

We hope we can achieve our goals and we wish all the other participants all the very best! 

The hashtag #AustenInAugustRBR will be used on Twitter for all the updates. 
Those of you who wish to sign up, can do so right here.


  1. I love Pride and Prejudice! Have you seen the most recent movie with Kiera Knightly? I've been wanting to read the actual book, since I love the movie so much, ad the book is usually even better than the movie! Good Luck Janhvi and Sarika! I know you girls will do great with this challenge!

    1. Ah, that's lovely! I haven't read the book, nor have I seen the film (sad, I know). But I'm really looking forward to it! Thank you, Lindy. :)

  2. I would like to find a group to read East of Eden and Cloud Atlas with. It certainly would make it much easier!

    Here's my Saturday Snapshot and Weekend Cooking post. And hope you will stop by to enter my giveaway for the Literary Book Blog Hop, a $15 gift card to Book Depository!

    1. Oh yes, I'd love to read those two sometime. Thank you for stopping by, Deb! I'm off to check out your posts. :)

    2. Deb: East of Eden is one of my favorites. Maybe The Classics Club could set up a group read of that one - are you a member? If so, email us and let's talk about it. :)

      I haven't read Cloud Atlas, yet, but saw the movie last night and loved it.

  3. Great! Glad you both are joining us this year!


Thank you for stopping by and for taking the time out to share your thoughts with us. We really appreciate it!
