The Aftermath

While the celebration is still going on, I wanted to go ahead and pick the winner of the sassy red Penguin Drop-Caps edition of Pride and Prejudice.

The winner is Christa, who left the following comment:

“I love this idea. I am making my self some notes already about what to post. I do not have a blog (guess I should consider that) but excited to participate and will share with my local JASA here in the Tampa area. Can’t wait to read the new book. This will be great.”


While we didn’t end up with 200 participants signing up on this blog, there were, most certainly, well over two hundred individuals who expressed their love for Jane’s most well-loved classic across the web.  And that’s perfectly wonderful.

I have been slowly working my way through all of your tributes and letters to Jane, and they are truly lovely, funny, witty, heartfelt, and worthy of attention, so if you have a chance, visit as many as you can!

May the celebrations continue, with read-alongs, like the one at Austenprose, and rediscoveries.  Enjoy!

Somewhat ironically, I am guest-posting today over at Anna Horner’s blog, Diary of an Eccentric on why Emma is my favorite Austen novel.  Please swing by if you get a chance!

There are also various places around the web to win a copy of Austensibly Ordinary, but not for very much longer.  Try Free Book Friday, Chick Lit is Not Dead, Austen Authors, Austenprose, and Diary of an Eccentric.
