Free Jane Austen eBooks in Honor of her Birthday on Thursday, Dec 16th

Update for those who had trouble getting free ebooks this morning! Sourcebooks apologizes for the mixup and inconvenience, and is extending the offer of free illustrated Jane Austen ebooks through Friday, December 17th! Click on this link to order the sequel ebooks. Unfortunately, the Jane Austen illustrated come with a charge of .99 each.

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
Special e-book editions of Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Sense and Sensibility, Northanger Abbey, Persuasion and Mansfield Park will be available for free for one day only. These celebratory editions include the full novels, plus the legendary color illustrations of the Brock brothers, originally created to accompany the books in 1898.

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 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!
- Tara
