Just jumping in very quickly to say that I completed my first "challenge" when I watched "Lost in Austen" on DVD in its entirety last week. And I laughed hysterically through it... Obviously, it's not entirely true to the characterizations (let alone the plot) that Austen created in Pride & Prejudice, but I appreciated the humor and the inventiveness of the concept. I was relieved when someone mentioned that the one missing scene (where the main character, Amanda Price, sings "Downtown" at Netherfield) is available on a YouTube clip here. Very funny!
Tonight's the night when AustenFest will officially come to a close with the drawing of winners for all of the books. We'll be giving ten away! Good luck to all who participated--I hope you'll come away with a book or two!!
I intend, however, for everyone to be a winner, if not with a book, then with a beverage... Details are still being worked out, but I will keep you posted!
