If you want to add some free Jane Austen variations to your Kindle, Nook, or other reading devices now is the time to do it!! I've already checked out the entire list and can not wait to download these books to my iTouch and my son's Kindle (he'll really love me when he sees all of these on his Kindle won't he??).

  1. How AWESOME! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  2. thanks for the heads up!!!! although I already have the complete works of Jane Austen on my Kindle. I'm sure your son will be thrilled--who knows he might even give it to you :)

  3. Wow this is an amazing offer. Thanks for sharing.

  4. This is amazingly generous of Sourcebooks. I will definitely take advantage of this offer.

    It's hard to believe that it's been 235 years. Her books seem modern somehow. I'm looking forward to a good reread and lots of new reads this year. Too bad there isn't another Austen chellenge.

    Thanks, Staci, for letting me know about this.

  5. I am going to have to set a reminder because I know I will forget!! I haven't read any Austen. Ever! A crime, I know.

  6. Staci, I haven't read any of the Austen-inspired novels. Do you recommend any?

  7. Okay... so I didn't really know who Jane Austin was until I was about 25...

    Linda, a gal in my Omaha Book club was the President of the National Jane Austin Society until about 5 years ago. My book club went to a Jane birthday celebration a few years ago (Lisa, lit and life) and myself were the only two who ended up going. Oh my... that's all I'm saying!

    We were out of our element - no one told me I needed a costume!!

    Happy Birthday Jane

  8. Woohoo I downloaded a few of these, looking forward to reading The Pemberley Chronicles and Sharon Lathan's novel
