This month, we’re taking a break from the monthly reading of Jane Austen novels. I’m giving away these lovely items to two winners.
Do you love to scribble? Here’s a lovely hardback Jane Austen edition journal to keep your random thoughts.
Whoever gets the journal automatically wins this classic pen. A Swiss made silver ballpoint pen which writes in blue ink. The pen itself bears an image of Jane Austen, plus it has ‘Jane Austen (1775 – 1817)’ printed down the side. It comes in an attractive box, bearing the same image; a detail from the engraving commisioned by J.E Austen-Leigh for the frontispiece of his ‘Memoir of Jane Austen’, in 1870.
The second winner will have this charming calendar for 2009 by English Literary Classics. Each month features a Jane Austen quotation and an illustration from one of her novels.
How to join?
(a) ANYONE (member or non-member) who has read any of the four featured novels (Persuasion, Emma, Mansfield Park, Lady Susan) in the Jane Austen Online Book Club may join.
(b) Make a twist about any chapter, story line from ANY of the mentioned novels (e.g. Fanny Price ending up with someone else instead of Edmund, in Mansfield Park).
(c) Blog about the twist and link back to this post (will earn 2 points). If you don’t have a blog, you may submit your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org (earning 1 point).
(d) Submit your entry on or before December 25, 2008, 11:30 PM Pacific time.
(e) Winners will be drawn via randomizer.
Happy scribbling, everyone!
