Thank you so much to the 62 of you who filled out the form and gave me your thoughts on how to continue the group! I‘ve compiled all of that great info and have a proposal, but since I‘m excited and far too wordy for Litsy, if you‘re tagged, I‘ve sent you an email. 😉

Can you please take a look and let me know what you think? I‘d love to get something going for us for December or January.

Thank you!

Bookwormjillk Got your email! I like the idea of 3 books every 2 months starting in January. Thank you! 7d
mollyrotondo Thank you for the email! I agree with @Bookwormjillk that 3 books every 2 months sounds like a great idea! That way the discussions and time to read can be spread out and anyone who wants to read all 3 can fit it into their schedule. Thank you for all your time that you put into this! 7d
ravenlee I‘m with them 👆🏼. It sounds like a great plan to me and thank you so much for working it all out! Pemberlittens forever! 7d
LeahBergen I agree with everyone above 👆🏻! Three books every two months with the option to jump in and out sounds perfect. Thanks so much! 😘 7d
Chrissyreadit 🙌🥳sounds like a plan 7d
quietjenn Yep, chiming in to agree! Thank you for your thought and planning - excited for this iteration of things! 7d
batsy Thank you for the detailed email and the hard work that goes into this 💕 I'm also in agreement with the rest; three books every two months is ideal and being able to jump in and out depending on interest also works perfectly imo! 7d
Cathythoughts Thanks so much for your email ! Yes , I agree & would be delighted with this plan .. three books every two months & having the choice 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻❤️ 7d
Kdgordon88 I'm on board with all the above! So happy to have this group continue reading together. Thank you for keeping us going. Love ❤ this group so much! 7d
erzascarletbookgasm 3 books from different categories every 2 months with the options of reading along sounds great. 👌 Thank you for your effort! 💛 7d
jenniferw88 Agree with above, and willing to host the buddy reads for non-fiction books about Jane, and also to help host for the other authors. 7d
SarahBookInterrupted Yes, I agree too. 3 books every 2 months is perfect. Will you still be doing your funny little summary posts? I love those so much. They don‘t have to be daily obviously with 3 books but was just wondering. 7d
SarahBookInterrupted @sprainedbrain thank you for all the work you do and have done for this group. It‘s much appreciated! 7d
StayCurious I agree with everyone here and am happy to get involved with the group! 7d
megnews I like your plan and I‘m excited to join in. Thanks for all your work on this. (edited) 6d
BarkingMadRun Agree as well! 6d
nanuska_153 I agree with everyone above, 3 books every 2 months sounds perfect cause it gives you the time to read more than one if you are interested. Thanks for all the hard work! 6d
TheAromaofBooks I like that the consensus seems to be leaning towards three books/two months, because I also like that schedule! Thank you so much for taking the time to send your informative email!!! 6d
MaureenMc @sprainedbrain Thank you for taking the time & putting so much thought into this. I truly appreciate it. 😊 I, too, like the 3 books/2 mos. proposal. 6d
Daisey I agree that this plan sounds great, and I‘m very much looking forward to reading with this group again. 6d
Librarybelle Everything sounds good to me! Thanks for taking the time to write a very informative email…lots of hard work on your part, so thank you so much for coordinating! 6d
Amandajoy I love the ideas! The 3 books / 2 months is a great schedule. They‘ll be good variety & low pressure. I also love @nanuska_153 ‘s idea that in honor of Austen we should focus on writers who have contributed to the feminist canon. (Along with some retellings, because, let‘s face it, while fun, not all retellings are great works of feminist literature.) 6d
katy4peas 3 books/2 months is a great timeline for me as I am a slow reader. 🙂 This seems like a great way to include lots of interests and you obviously put a lot of thought and detail into it. I think it will work very well. Thank you for your hard work of organizing the group and for reorganizing us. 💕 I‘m excited to read with this group again! 6d
rubyslippersreads Sounds great to me! Looking forward to more Austenish reading! Thanks for organizing us. 😀 6d
Q84 Every 2 months sounds great! 6d
DebinHawaii I echo everyone else, the 3 books in 2 months & option to drop in-and-out is great. Thank you for giving it so much thought & effort! 🤗 6d
I.be.Stef Thanks for the email! The stated options sound good to me, granted though that I won‘t be able to join every time. I‘m excited to join the group again! 6d
Reggie Thank goodness, because even though I don‘t participate I was missing all the haiku, meme, collage content. Lol love the passion of your group. 6d
mom2bugnbee Echoing everyone else - the plan outlined in your email sounds fantastic! Thanks for everything, Jenni - you rock at making this group so much fun! 6d
AnneCecilie I‘m with everyone else. 3 books in 2 months and participate in what you want sounds great 5d
kspenmoll Appreciate all your work- did not get email so maybe I forgot to fill your form out. But whatever you all decide I would like to join in. You may have an old gmail address I no longer have. 5d
sprainedbrain @kspenmoll I did get your form, and you were included in the email. The email address I sent to was the one on your form: kdspenmoll @ icloud dot com. Was that not correct? 5d
sprainedbrain @kspenmoll can you please confirm your correct email so that I can resend the email to you? You can send me an email at jenni.d.langford@gmail.com if you prefer that to posting it here. 4d
kspenmoll @sprainedbrain I sent it to your email as well: kdspenmoll@icloud.com 4d
MeganAnn I am in agreement with everyone else. 3 books/2 months is perfect and I love being able to jump in or out depending on the books and what works for me. I‘d love to start this in January and I‘m happy to help with buddy reads for a couple of the retellings/adaptations if needed. (edited) 3d

Looks fun! Will hold off on cracking this one open until some chores are done, tho 😄

Might be of interest to my #pemberlittens 😘

So I‘ve been thinking about getting the band back together… I miss #PemberLittens!

We finished the 6 novels (and it was a fantastic 18 months for me), but I know some have said they would like to continue in some way, so I‘ve created yet another form for those interested to share their thoughts.


Open to anyone, former participant in the group or not. There‘s even a question about (gasp!) other authors!

sprainedbrain I‘m going to tag the massive list one last time, but I promise that going forward I will only tag people that are interested in continuing with the group. ❤️ 3w
