Books and Reading:
- The Jane Austen group on GoodReads (or perhaps it's just one of many Janeite groups) is having a group reading of Mansfield Park in July. July is looking like it's going to be a very busy month for me so I'm thinking about listening to an audio version of it. I used to borrow OverDriveMedia audio books from the library when we lived in northern California (they had lots to choose from) but when I checked the library here, they don't have it available to listen to via ODM. Luckily, a book blogger I follow posted about the site she uses to listen to public domain books for free, so I'm downloading one of their versions of MP to try. (here or here)
- Speaking of Mansfield Park, it was first published 200 years ago. You can learn more at JASNA's Mansfield Park Bicentery page
- Recently I also came across this book (sorry, I can't remember where I first saw it) that I think Austen fans will enjoy: Among the Janeites: A Journey Through the World of Jane Austen Fandom by Deborah Yaffe. I've added it to my TBR list but the library doesn't have it yet so I may be in for a long wait. Seeing how long my TBR list it though, that's okay. And if I can remember where I saw the author interviewed, I come back and link to it as well.
