Thursday, December 16th is Jane Austen’s 235th birthday!
Sourcebooks, the world’s leading publisher of Jane Austen fiction, is offering a unique deal to readers who want to celebrate Jane by reading special editions of all six of Austen’s beloved novels in a 21st century format.
|The free books come with Brock illustrations|
In addition to the Jane Austen classics, readers can also enjoy ten bestselling Austen-inspired novels for free on December 16th in honor of her birthday, including, Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife by Linda Berdoll, Mr. Darcy’s Diary by Amanda Grange and Mr. & Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy: Two Shall Become One by Sharon Lathan.
This is what blogger Tara Fly had to say about ordering the book:
I downloaded my copies for free this morning from http://BarnesandNoble.com and wasn’t charged any fees. :)
I followed the link provided by Laurel Ann on AustenProse in this blog post:
B&N takes you through their standard check-out process, asking you to sign-in or register for an account (which includes providing a CC# and shipping address) … I already had an account with them, so I was asked to verify my information.
But when you reach the end of the “transaction”, the items on your bill are free.
I didn’t have an eReader for my PC, but B&N has free eReader downloads as well.
I’m so excited about this offer; it was really sweet of them. Cheers!
