Book Giveaway

One copy of The Jane Austen Handbook (see photo below) will be given away, by drawing, on July 27th. The rules are as follows:

*1 entry-Leave a comment telling which Jane Austen book is your favorite.
*2 entries- If you are now, or if you become a follower of this blog (Everything Victorian). Please let me know if you are already a follower.


  1. I think right now my favorite is Persuasion. This seems to change as I change in life! I subscribe to your blog in Google Reader.

  2. Oh, so hard to choose. I would have to say Persuasion. I was prompted to reread it after watching The Lake House (Sandra Bullock, Keanu Reeves).

    I am a follower, Barbara, but I mostly ignore that since it is more complicated now with the Google Friend Connect. Once again technology is years ahead of me.

  3. Hey Barb, I'm the 22nd follower on the 22nd day and I was born on the 22nd! Maybe I'll be the winner! I love Jane Austen and my favorite book of her is " Pride and Prejudice! I just got a book by Carrie Berris, Pride and Prescience " which is suppoesed to be a sequel!
    I also got the 9 books in the Jane Austin mystery series by Stephanie Barron!

  4. Hi, Barbara --
    I am already a follower, and I also have your site with a link listed on my blog under "Sites I Follow" -- do I get extra brownie points for that? (just teasing).

    Right now, my favorite Austen Book is Sense and Sensibility, but that may change since I joined the Everything Austen challenge and will get to some new titles.

    Come visit me at http://www.joanne-sliceoflife.blogspot.com I have a few posts that might interest you, such as "The Language of the Fan" and a post reviewing Georgette Heyer's "The Talisman Ring" with a great link to Regency cant.

  5. fave right now is p&p, but i'm also doing the everything austen challenge which may sway me to another book.

  6. My favorite Jane Austen book is probably Mansfield Park, though it's hard to pick!

    I'm also now a follower of your blog; thank you so much!

  7. Pride & Prejudice is my favorite! Although all other come very close as seconds.

    I am a brand new follower of your blog!


    Take care,

  14. I have just discovered your wonderful blog this morning by way of Ms. Bookish. I will become a follower instantly as I love Victorian literature.

    I would like to be included in this give away. I teach Pride and Prejudice and since I re-read it every year for class, I would have to say it is my favorite Jane Austen book for now. Of course, that may change after I complete the Everything Austen reading challenge -- where I plan to read all 6 novels and watch a corresponding film adaptation.

    Thank you for hosting this lovely give away.
