(BOOK GIVEAWAY) Tell Us What Jane Austen Means to You

BlogHer Original Post

In addition to William Deresiewicz's book, reviewers for BlogHer Book Club's A Jane Austen Education review campaign also received a gorgeous Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition of, Jane Austen: The Complete Novels. Yes, you read that right -- all of Austen's novels in one beautiful book. Doesn't it make your Janeite heart go all aflutter? And now you can win the same thing! Both books.

A Jane Austen Education and Jane Austen: The Complete Novels

Entering to win is easy: Just tell how Jane Austen changed your life. Never read Jane Austen? I find that hard to believe (a life without Mr. Darcy or Capt. Wentworth hardly seems right), but you can read some of our reviews of William Deresiewicz's book (a combination memoir/fiction critique detailing how each of Austen's novels taught him an important life lesson), and I guarantee you'll have one you want to read -- and that's also an acceptable comment for entry. Plus you'll get introduced to Darcy and Wentworth! Oh and Colonel Brandon, too! (What? I like my Jane Austen heroes.)

Enter as many times as you like. We'll close comments on June 24, 2011 at 3 pm PT and choose five lucky winners with a randomizer. Winners will be notified via email, so make sure you have your email address in your BlogHer profile.

Good luck!

UPDATED: Comments for this contest have now been closed and the winners have been emailed. Congratulations to Angie, mreese, Artsymom, Jill_ums and Anovelreview, who were our winners!
