Austen Mini-Challenge

Becky, over at Becky's Book Reviews, is hosting a mini-challenge that is sure to be my favorite! Why? Well, only because it features one of my favorite authors, Jane Austen. For this challenge, I'll be reading two Austen novels and I'll watch all six of the Masterpiece Theatre movies coming on in January. The novels I'll read are:

I hope you join in!

Do you know when Masterpiece starts showing the movies?

what network do you watch those movies on? I've read P&P, and I need to read more of her. It really challenges the mind!

Masterpiece Theatre can be tricky. So you'll need to double check with your local listings of course for air times and dates, but I did find the schedule for The Complete Jane Austen airing in the Spring of 2008.

Persuasion (January 13, 2008)
Northanger Abbey (January 20, 2008)
Mansfield Park (January 27, 2008)
Miss Austen Regrets (February 3, 2008)
Pride and Prejudice (February 10, 2008 through February 24) (Will be shown in three parts)
Emma (March 23, 2008)
Sense and Sensibility (March 30, 2008 and April 6, 2008)

Canada aired the new movies in December. And Australia has a different schedule as well. But they'll be broadcasting some Austen movies in 2008 as well.
