A couple Austen-ish giveaways!!

July 10, 2009

Ann over at the With My Needle blog has created this beautiful stitching chart for Everything Austen and wants to give it away to one of you!

Just stop by her blog and leave a comment to enter. Deadline to enter the contest is 12 noon, Central time, on July 15!

Also, have you seen the Facebook group entitled I’M A MAN WHO LOVES JANE AUSTEN? The group is inspired by Dan Begley’s book MS. TAKEN IDENTITY, a novel about a struggling male literary novelist who decides to write a fun commercial novel–but he has to pose as a woman to do so. The author has also written an essay entitled MAN! I FELL LIKE A WOMAN.

Hatchette Book Group has very generously offered three copies of MS. TAKEN IDENTITY to Everything Austen participants. If you are interested, please leave a comment on this post for a chance to win. To double you chances, Tweet about this giveaway on Twitter ( #everythingausten giveaway! 3 copies of Ms. Taken Identity ). I will announce the winners on July 15th, the same date that one lucky participant will win a DVD copy of Lost in Austen.

    Like the others…The cover makes me giggle. It’s one of those covers that just makes you want to pick up a book and at least browse the pages.

    Enter me please. I’d love to tweet, but I can’t remember my password at the moment.

    p.s. My mom is unoffically joining me for your challenge. She can barely check her email, let alone blog about anything. She fessed up that she has NEVER read anything by Jane Austen. She watched The Jane Austen Book Club with me yesterday and I now she asked me to borrow some Austen. I will unofficially add her comments with my reviews.

      I’m so glad that you Mom has decided to read Austen. My Mother was a life-long reader and it always gave me great joy to share books with her.

        My mom only recently discovered reading. She and my dad divorced last year after 31 years of marriage and I had lots of books and she started borrowing. I’m really glad she has. I started her with the Twilight series and now she carries a book with her everywhere she goes. I love it!

        Now I’m getting her into the classics!

  14. July 10, 2009 9:38 pm

    Sounds like fun! Please throw my name in, too.

  15. July 10, 2009 11:06 pm
