Congrats, Sheng! I will be sending the prizes tomorrow.
Thanks to those who participated and wanted to participate (but didn’t make it on time, you know who you are). Reading Jane Austen novels has been challenging and fun. I must admit that if not for this online book club, I have probably read only one (or none at all) Austen novel to this date. It is generally good to have a reading schedule/a virtual group to read with. Our book club now exits with this one. But the Jane Austen Book Club page will remain. Feel free to link back whenever necessary.
Who will read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies? I will.
Thanks, everyone and enjoy the rest of the week!

I have just finished reading and watching (luckily there’s an an ongoing sale at Virgin Megastore) Pride and Prejudice. No spoilers here. Can I just say that I liked it a lot? This is definitely Jane Austen’s finest novel. I enjoyed the exchange of arguments between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. For me, Elizabeth Bennet is one of a kind in her generation.
The contest is still on for Pride and Prejudice readers. You may submit your entry on or before May 3, 2009. Details here.

We read Love, Friendship and Other Early Works last month to warm up for our last novel (how time flies), Pride and Prejudice. The latter is the most celebrated among Jane Austen’s novels. I know most of you already read/re-read it, are still planning to read it and have seen the film adaption. I’m yet to read. 🙂
To culminate our reading for the online Jane Austen Book Club, we’re holding this contest which is open to anyone who has read Pride and Prejudice. You need to write a review on your blog about this novel and (a) link back to this post and to the online Jane Austen Book Club page and (b) email the link to your post to witsandnuts (at) gmail (dot) com.
You may submit your entries on or before May 3, 2009, Sunday. The winner will be drawn via Randomizer and announced on the following day. Prizes (Mr. Darcy eco bag, leather bookmarks, and silver Jane Austen pen) will be sent via registered mail.
