The Pride and Prejudice Bicentenary Challenge 2013

As some of you are aware, the 28th of this month is the 200th anniversary of Pride & Prejudice, but then there are some of you who do read this blog on a regular basis that aren't aware of that fact.  But in any case, it is going to be a momentous occasion, as it is probably Jane Austen's best known work.

And to celebrate this momentous occasion, Austenprose is hosting a challenge to celebrate the bicentenary anniversary.  And you probably guessed it, I will be joining them in watching and reading items that are spun off of this very well known book.

Of course there is the mini-series that was released almost twenty years ago and the movie that was released about 10 years ago.  But there are other items that have been released since the mini-series was released 20 years ago (still love the shirt scene and can't watch the kiss at the end).  And maybe the mini-series was the reason for many of these things being released within the last 20 years.

So here is what I plan on reading and viewing during the coming year for this particular challenge:

Pride & Prejudice (1813)
• Pride & Prejudice A&E/BBC mini-series (1995)
• Defiantly not Mr. Darcy by Karen Doornebos (2011)
• Bridget Jones's Diary movie (2001)
• Bridget Jones's Diary: The Edge of Reason (2004)
• Becoming Jane (2007)
• The Jane Austen Book Club (2007)

I realize that the vast majority of the items listed are films, but honestly I am reading enough as it is for the coming year.  And based on what I have listed above, I will be at the Disciple level (5-8 selections), at the very least.
