Seen on the Blogosphere

While surfing the web we noticed an interesting blog: Reading Jane Austen, in which a twenty-three year old skeptic grinds his way through the Austen canon. Joseph is currently reading Sense and Sensibility, and "reserves the right to be utterly unimpressed." His posts include Plot points, Character commentary, Narratology notes, Language, Diction and Thesaur, and Memorables

Joseph's reading schedule for 2009:

Sense and Sensibility - January 2009, approximately 2 weeks of reading. Goal: full text plus viewing/criticism of a film adaptation.

Northanger Abbey - January 2009, approximately 2 weeks of reading. Goal: full text after a reading of Ann Radcliffe’s The Italian, plus supplementary texts.

Pride and Prejudice - February 2009, approximately 3 weeks of reading. Goal: full text plus heavy supplementary texts and criticism of at least 2 film adaptations.

Mansfield Park - February 2009, approximately 2 weeks of reading. Goal: full text plus criticism of a film adaptation.

Emma - March 2009, approximately 3 weeks of reading. Goal: full text plus supplementary texts.

Persuasion - March 2009, approximately 2 weeks of reading. Goal: full text.

Good luck, Joseph I hope your blog will start a discourse with other Austen fans.

What a lofty goal for a guy or a girl! And he's a Jane virgin ta-boot! I can't wait to read his posts and see how things are going for him.

Great plug. I have been reading a chapter-by-chapter blog of the Lord of the Rings, and I am sort of developing a taste for them.
