Happy 2013 everyone!! Did everyone have a good new year?
What did you do?

Anyone have any resolutions? Jane Austen's related/book related/generally?

Felice anno nuovo!

My reading goal for 2012 was 80 books but I managed to read only 61. So my goal for 2013 will be 80 books again and among them there'll be all Jane Austen novels (again!), a few of her minor works I haven't read yet and some sequels, prequels and retelling that are lying in my book case.

Have a wonderful 2013 full of Jane Austen spirit!!!

Sarah Louise Smith (sarahlouisesmith) Happy New Year to you Soph & everyone else :)
Sorry I've been a bit quiet these past few weeks, busy with family stuff...

My book-related goals for the year include writing my second novel as well as successfully launching the first! As well as reading plenty - I haven't got a figure, just as much as I can :)

2013 is of course the 200th anniversary of P&P's publication so definitely going to read that again, as discussed in the other thread :)

Shelley (shelleys_shelf) Happy New Year! I haven't been here much the past few weeks either; it's been pretty crazy because of the holidays. I haven't really decided on a reading goal yet for this year. I'll probably just try to keep up with what my book clubs are reading.

Sarah Louise Smith (sarahlouisesmith) Thanks Soph :)

Irene, it's chick lit - modern woman's romance with a few twists... You can read the blurb here if you're interested:

Well, my JA related goals are:

1. To read the rest of the Jane Austen's (MP, NA, and Emma) before the JA Festival Australia in April.
2. Read Amanda Grange's hero diaries. :)
