18h & 19th Century Women Writers' Reading Challenge

I saw this over at Wandeca Reads and couldn't resist joining, I'm always saying I want reread Austen and read more Gaskell among others so this is the perfect opportunity. You can find the rules for this Challenge hosted by Becky here.

The challenge is about reading no less than four books and no more than twelve book by women who wrote between 1701 and 1899 from January 1st to December 29th 2009. I'm setting my goal at six books at the moment and as I go along I'll see if I want to read more.

My reading list is:

Jane Austen (1775 - 1817) - Emma - Read
Anne Bronte (1820 - 1849) - Agnes Grey - Read
Charlotte Mary Yonge (1823 - 1801) - The Little Duke - Read
Charlotte Bronte (1816 - 1865) - Jane Eyre - Read
Elizabeth Gaskell (1810 - 1865) - Mary Barton - Read

This is the second challenge I join and I'm really enjoying this. I think I'm going to set up a page to organise them as the odds are that I'll enter more soon.


  1. Thanks for letting me now about this challenge. As I have some books by 18th and 19th century women authors, I might tackle them down for this challenge.
