Georgian Reading Challenge
Host: Becky’s Book Reviews (sign up here)
Duration: December 1, 2018 – December 31, 2019
# of books: minimum four

Georgian Era can be defined as either 1714-1830 OR 1744-1837. You may choose how you want to define it in terms of the reading challenge. It covers the reigns of George I, George II, George III, and George IV of England. (If you go with the later definition, it also includes the oh-so-brief reign of William IV.) This includes the REGENCY PERIOD but is more inclusive.

There will be seven check-in posts. February 16, 2019; April 6, 2019; May 18, 2019; July 6, 2019; September 7, 2019; November 2, 2019. December 28, 2019.

IF you love reading AND you happen to love tea…consider joining my Share-a-Tea reading challenge.

“Official” theme song: Born 2 Rule (The Four Georges)

What counts:
Novels, poems, plays, short stories, novellas, letters, diaries, essays, nonfiction published in Great Britain (or its colonies) during the Georgian era.
Nonfiction books published about the Georgian era. Including, of course, biographies on the royal family.
Historical fiction set during the Georgian era.
Books, e-books, audio books.
Movies and television series set during this period–if you review them–can count. But try to keep things balanced.
You may make a list if you want to plan ahead…or read according to your whimsy.


I’m signing up to read 4 in 2019.
The first book I’ll read is Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Published in 1813.
My copy is a beautiful, large, hardcover edition by the Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, 2010.
