Emma Read-along Starting Line #Emma200th

Emma_ReadalongThe idea of reading Jane Austen’s Emma this December has grown from a few friends I have blogged with, to many I’ve just been introduced to for the first time.
What a wonderful gathering we have for the reading of Emma‘s 200th anniversary! — Dolce Bellezza

I’m reading Emma by Jane Austen this month for the read-along hosted by Dolce Bellezza. She is posting her thoughts on Dec. 5, 12, and 19, but I haven’t started reading yet, so haven’t put myself on a schedule. I’ve read Emma before (possibly twice before, actually) but who gets tired of Jane Austen? I haven’t seen any of the film or TV versions, though, so would be glad for recommendations on which ones (or whether) to watch as well as read this month!

  1. Indeed! Who can get tired of Jane Austen 😀 I had some reading goals for the rest of the year ( as short a time as that is) but I may check out this Emma challenge.
    Glad you posted about it.

  2. I’ve only read Pride and Prejudice and Northanger Abbey before, but this is my favorite Austen so far! I just finished Volume 1 and found it so delightful. It amazes me, too, that a book written 200 years ago this month can be so applicable to today. Looking forward to your thoughts whenever you read it. 🙂

Would love to have you comment!
