When is the deadline? I probably will not be able to read it before the first week of June.

Not sure yet about a deadline, Wild. Maybe you could just arrange to loan Sue & Jo's book if it looks like the challenge will allow you time to read it?

Loaning from Sue and Jo won't do any good since the main problem is that I am not home so that I can read the book. I can order the book from Book Depo while still at Oz so that it will be waiting for me when I arrive. But if the deadline is during May I'll skip this challenge.

I'll try this one, too. Ordered it today. If someone else would like to borrow it after I'm through, you're welcome to it. :)

I'm in as well. I must admit that I'm not a big Jane Austen fan but I look forward to reading this one

It'll take us a couple weeks to get the book from the UK, and a couple of weeks for both me and Baker to read it (see how I rashly commit her to this one?), so an early/mid June deadline works for me.

I'm in. It will take me a little bit to get the book as well, so a later deadline is good for me, too.
