The #PersuasionReadalong – Come Join Us!

Every year I re-read at least one of Jane Austen’s books. I consider a reading year without Jane Austen to be a reading year wasted. I also love nothing more than to force other people to read Jane Austen for the first time.

I was planning on re-reading Persuasion next. And then Amanda and Holly from Gun In Act One both put Persuasion on their 2015 TBR Pile Challenge lists. So when they asked if I wanted to read it along with them I was like “when do we start?!”


So here’s what we’re going to do! Together, the three of us are going to host a little casual readalong! No sign ups or posting required from you! We’re going to split the book into three sections and each of us will post about one section through the month of March and try and get some discussion going. So if you want to join us, go and start reading Persuasion soon! That’s all you have to do and then we can talk about!

It’s one of the most underrated books probably ever. And it’s so good! It’s funny! And clever! And so satisfying.

You should read it with us.

And if you chat about it on the twitter, use #Persuasionreadalong so we can all join in!

Simple right?

Persuasion – go read it. I bought a brand new fancy copy just for this!

  1. It’s been so long since I read Persuasion that I really should join you, but my pile up is huge in the next couple of months (I’m about to pay for all those books I put on hold at the library). I’m hoping your updates will remind me of the details I have forgotten, though. Have fun!

    • It’s been so long and it will feel so good! Like putting on a really great comfy old sweater. It’s such a short book! Come on, you know you want to!

      (Although I totally sympathize with your library predicament. I always feel bad for the people that may be waiting for the books I took out.)

      • Maybe I’ll skim along (although, I’m not good at skinning – it usually just leads to wondering what I missed and going back to read properly). Ok, I will get the book out and read it whenever I get a few extra minutes. It can take turns with Anne, and we’ll see what happens. 🙂

  2. I reread one Jane Austen book every year between Christmas and New Year’s. It’s my tradition. Persuasion is my all-time favorite, and I savor it every time I read it. Since I just read it less than 2 months ago, I won’t be joining in for the read-along, but I will certainly follow your discussions!
