The Sense & Sensibility Bicentenary Challenge 2011

In honor of the bicentenary anniversary of the publishing of Jane Austen's Sense & Sensibility, Laurel of Austenprose is hosting a challenge to celebrate.  Now you know I cannot resist anything Austen related and I've been wanting to reread Sense & Sensibility so I'm breaking my self-imposed ban on more challenges to join this one.  I'm joining at the Neophyte level to keep the pressure off so I only have to read/watch 1-4 related things.  My plan for the challenge is to read:

The Cookbook Collector by Allegra Goodman
The Three Wiesmans of Westport by Cathleen Schine
Sense & Sensibility by Jane Austen
Becoming Jane Austen by Jon Spence

Chances are I'll also be watching at least one movie adaptation of the book as well.  And maybe another book...or two.

  2. I had no idea the Goodman book was related to Sense & Sensibility. I may have to rethink its position in my TBR pile!
