Happy birthday Jane!

Happy birthday to you.

Happy birthday to you.

Happy birthday Jane Austen.

Happy birthday to you.


If you guessed that today was Jane Austen’s birthday, you’re a winner!  The sensational novelist would have turned 235 years old today.  In honor of her birthday, Sourcebooks is offering all six special editions of Austen’s complete novels along with accompanying illustrations.  Not only that, the following, Austen inspired books will also be offered today, completely free, wherever e-books are sold.

Eliza’s Daughter by Joan Aiken

The Darcys & the Bingleys by Marsha Altman

Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife by Linda Berdoll

What Would Jane Austen Do? by Laurie Brown

I admit to being shamefully remiss when it comes to reading on my Kindle, but I will definitely be taking advantage of this offer.  I have had my eye on Lydia Bennet’s Story especially!  Anyone else planning on downloading any of these books?

  2. That’s, wonderful…thanks for sharing!

  3. I am so mad at myself for missing the opportunity to download these books! I didn’t catch up on book blogs until today, and I have seen this offer discussed in no fewer than three. *Stomps foot*
