Austen In August Year 10! #AustenInAugustRBR


Welcome to the Master Post for our 10th Annual Austen in August event! This is a one-month event focused on all things Jane Austen, including her primary texts, any re-imaginings of her works, biographies, critical texts, etc. In mid-June, I announced sign-ups for the event, and was excited to discover that people are ready to come back to Jane! I know many of you, like me, have been anxious to get started, so thank you all for your interest, for signing-up, and for spreading the word.

I have a few things planned for this month-including giveaways, guest posts, and, of course, my own reading and reviewing of Jane Austen works. I plan to share some favorite posts from years past, too, in celebration of an entire decade of this event!

There’s also a group read of Mansfield Park happening this month, so if you haven’t picked a text, that might be a good one!  

First, let’s talk logistics: Whenever you review a book or write a post related to the event, please link it in the comments section of this master post and include some kind of title or description. This will ensure that others will know what your post is about before they click on it. Please make sure to only link-up your posts in the comments on this main post!

Whenever you link a post, you will become eligible to win the giveaways that I will be hosting here throughout the month. The only way to be entered for these prizes is to make sure your posts are linked-up here (this includes reviews of the books you’ve read, commentary on Austen topics, giveaways, or any other posts directly related to this event).

There are also going to be giveaways hosted by participants of the event (thank you for your generosity!). Specific details for each of these giveaways may be different, so be sure to read the rules on those giveaway posts carefully and enter if you are interested! For any of the giveaways, here or at other participants’ blogs, you will need to be pre-registered (by August 3rd) for this event in order to win. 

Be sure to use #AustenInAugustRBR to chat about this event on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, etc. 

Are you participating? What are you planning to read? Let us know in the comments!

    • That’s great! I love her juvenilia. I remember you read Lady Susan for a previous Austen in August. (I’m pretty sure you enjoyed it?)

  1. Happy Tenth Anniversary! I started reading Mansfield Park and so far so good! I think I might finally read some William Cowper this month as well. Fanny and Edmund have a moment over the dinner table when one of his poems comes to mind, sparked by the conversation about landscape “improvements.”

  2. Hooray! I’ve just checked out The Heiress, a P&P spin-off. And I should really reread one of the originals this year. Looking forward to all the fun.

  4. I’m planning to reread Emma this month 🙂 Beyond that, who knows? I might watch an Austen movie with my kids at some point too.

    Congratulations on the ten year mark for this event! My annual Tolkien Blog Party will be turning ten next month too 🙂 Hard to believe, sometimes!
