Austen in August: Persuasion Read Along


July 31, 2012 by Heidi

Austen in August Read Along

Hi friends! Many of you may have noticed that I participated in my first read along earlier this summer for the book Outlander, and that it didn’t go so well on my end.  I didn’t enjoy the book whatsoever, but I did enjoy the fun collaborative discussion setting of a read along, so I’m happy to say that in August I will be participating in another!

I can say with resounding certainty that I will be a much bigger fan of Persuasion, and I’d love it if some of you decided to read along!  Today is the last day for sign ups over at The Book Rat, but even if you don’t have the time or desire to fit Persuasion into your August reading, I highly suggest you check out Misty’s blog for all of the other fun goodies that will be up for her annual Jane Austen celebration, this year entitled Austen in August.

I suppose that’s also fair warning to blog readers to expect at least 2 Persuasion posts by me this coming month–hopefully I’ll leave my ranty pants at home!

    You go girl!! I would love to participate in this but I have a month to get through SO MANY BOOKS before going back to one job or another 😛 Enjoy Jane!

      Thanks, friend! I’ve kind of said ‘screw it’ to getting books read ‘on time’ and am thinking an approximation is good enough for me.

      • Alyssa says:

        There are just so many I want to read and I know I won’t have time come September! Plus..I may or may not have had them out of the library for..oh, I don’t know..MONTHS!! Bad librarian!!

        • Heidi says:

          Haha, yeah, I always feel guilty when I’m like ‘yeah…I’ve had this book for 1/4 of the year…killing circulation’. But I’ve been good about restricting library books lately. Only one more to finish and I’m through!

  2. I am also participating in the Persuasion readalong! I adore Jane Austen and read this book a few years ago, but I’ll never say no to a reread and this sounds like fun. Looking forward to it!

    • Heidi says:

      Yay! I’m so glad to hear you’ll be reading along! I’ll be looking forward to reading your thoughts. Now that it’s August, I really ought to get started on my reading of it.

    This sounds like fun but I’m a bit behind with reviews – I’ll just have to look forward to your posts!

    • Heidi says:

      Haha, yeah, I totally feel ya. My ‘needs review’ pile is stacking up something awful these days. And the worst part is–they’re all books I REALLY want to talk about on the blog because they’re wonderful!

  4. Oh no! I’m so bummed that I was on vacation and missed the sign-up for this. I’m really looking forward to hearing all about it though!

    • Heidi says:

      Awe, I should have posted about it earlier! I hope you had a wonderful vacation, Catie, I just got back from camping for the weekend myself. =)
