Themed Reading Challenge

February 1, 2009 - July 31, 2009
Caribousmom is hosting the Themed Reading Challenge again in 2009. Here are the guidelines:

Books should be chosen from the reader’s TBR pile (this may be an actual physical pile or a virtual pile).
The goal is to read 4 to 6 books linked by theme.
Overlaps with other challenges are allowed.
Readers may change their list of books at any time.
Readers may choose three different levels of participation:
Read at least 4 books with the same theme.
Read at least 5 books that share at least TWO themes.
Read at least 6 books that share MORE than two themes.
Themes can be geographic, genre, author, subject matter, or anything in between! Last year’s themes were wonderfully creative and varied and included such things as: books about books, books set in New England, books with a color in the title, books about vampires, books with the word ‘lady’ in the title, Gothic classics, fairy tales retold for adults, high school classics, Asian culture, feathered friends, WWII, Canada, books in translation, and Beverly Cleary. There were many others I have not listed here!
My Selections:
I am selecting 4 books with one theme: Jane Austin By Another Name. This means books that are by other authors using Jane Austin's characters, themes, or her name in the title of the book.
1. The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen – Syrie James
2. Letters From Pemberley – Jane Dakins
3. Me and Mr. Darcy – Alexandra Potter
4. The Man Who Loved Jane Austen – Sally Smith O’Rourke
