Leann posted about this reading challenge at Roof Beam Reader (intro post is here, master post is here) and I decided to go all in! I have been unpacking my books a few at a time, deciding which unread ones I want to read (and putting the ones I don't or no longer wish to own in the Paperbackswap.com list or the donation box). I have unearthed five Austenesque fiction and nonfiction books I haven't yet read, so I am going to read them during August. I have filled my July with fictiony fluff, so reading Austen may be a good grounding experience for me.
I will also add Emma to my Kindle as well, because I haven't read it in a while. I reread Pride & Prejudice and Sense & Sensibility over the past several months, so it's about time for an Emma reread.
