Sense & Sensibility Bicentenary Challenge (2011)

So I'm taking on the Sense & Sensibility Bicentenary Challenge for 2011 sponsored by Laurel Ann of Austenprose. 200 years since the publication of Sense & Sensibility in 1811, it's hard to believe that a story written that long ago is still relevant, but it is. Miss Austen is just timeless.

I'm going for Aficionada: 9 – 12 selections (or show off level) - I'm really looking forward to this challenge. Sense & Sensibility is not my favorite book by Miss Austen, but this will give me an opportunity to explore it more fully in many different ways. I'm thinking this will be a fun year! 

My selections in no particular order:

The Three Weismanns of Westport; Cathleen Schine
From Prada to Nada; 2011
Sense and Sensibility; 1995
Sense and Sensibility: The Screenplay and Diaries; Emma Thompson & Lindsay Doran

Elinor and Marianne; Emma Tennant
Sense and Sensibility (Marvel Illustrated); Nancy Butler & Sonny Liew
Eliza's Daughter; Joan Aiken
Suspense and Sensibility; Carrie Bebris
The Cookbook Collector; Allegra Goodman
Colonel Brandon's Diary; Amanda Grange
Willoughby's Return; Jane Odiwe
Sense and Sensibility; 2008


  1. Wow JJ, your list is impressive. Thanks for joining the challenge. I am looking forward to your reviews.

  2. Laurel Ann -

    I'm looking forward to this - I've lined up some of my reading with yours just to see what we agree upon. The only thing I'm not sure about is From Prada to Nada - we'll see when that makes an appearance in my part of the world.



Have your say if you must.

Don't be rude.
