First off: apologies for this going up so late. There was miscommunication as to who would be posting it and in the end, it simply did not get done. Better fashionably late then never, isn't it?

Now to start us off, we've come up with a few prompts/discussion points to get us moving and they're behind the cut. Feel free to just say what you have to say on any of those or to jump in with your ideas on something else entirely. We're willing to go with the flow.

Welcome everyone [whether I know you or not] to read_austen!

This is the brainchild of my mind at four in the morning, with a beautiful dose of aid from Belinda [belle_bing] and we are both pleased to have you all here with us. Our first book and discussion will be on 13 July to give everyone plenty of time to leisurely enjoy reading Mansfield Park and to get into the spirit of the thing. The first discussion will be posted here in the community and in that discussion, we'll have a thread discussing the best night and time for a movie night.

Since you are all probably curious how discussions will probably go, one of us will post the discussion post with a few starting off points and then we'll pretty much let it go from there. If things are lagging/dying, we'll do our collective best to pep them up, but mostly we don't want to restrict things or hold anyone back. The point of this is a collective read, not a forced flashback to primary school.

SO mostly, thank you everyone and in the meantime, happy reading!
