Pride and Prejudice Bicentenary Challenge

As a lover of all things Jane Austen, I am not sure why I have not signed up for the Pride and Prejudice Bicentenary Challenge yet. I love, I loved the Sense and Sensibility Bicentenary Challenge, and I love all things Pride and Prejudice. I blame my relatively new job and the family schedule with running kids around, but I am going to sign up before it’s too late!

I would love to celebrate the two-hundredth anniversary of the publication of Pride and Prejudice by reading/viewing the following:

1.  Listen to a Pride and Prejudice audiobook

2.  Listen to a Pride and Prejudice Radio Production (shortened like a play with various actors)

3.  Read the original Pride and Prejudice

4.  Watch the 2005 version of Pride and Prejudice

5.  Read Bridget Jones’s Diary by Helen Fielding

6.  Watch the movie Bridget Jones’s Diary

7.  Read a spin-off novel or two

This puts me at seven items or so, which would make me a “Disciple.” I am looking forward to this!


  1. This does sound like your kind of challenge, Laura! I'm sure you'll enjoy it. I look forward to your posts.

  2. Good luck, Laura! I'm doing this challenge too.

  3. Great Sophia Rose! I'll have to check out some of your reviews. Are you posting them in the comments of Austenprose or do you have your own blog somewhere? I always look for one and can't find it!

    Suko - it is definitely my kind of challenge. I'm already getting items ready to review and am almost done listening to a Pride and Prejudice audiobook. So soothing!
