Hello dear readers!  Time to celebrate the birthday of our beloved Jane Austen!!

What are you doing to celebrate?  Anything fun or special?  Please do share!

Remember last year when I made a Jane Austen Christmas Book Tree?

That was so much fun and I really wanted to do it again this year, but since we are leaving for Colombia in 5 days it just didn’t seem to fit in with all the craziness we’ve had going on. :/  Hopefully next year!!


I am happy to say that I do have some lovely giveaways to share and celebrate Jane Austen’s special day with! 🙂  Come check them out below!


The lovely ladies from the Holidays with Jane series have their first anthology available on audiobook!  Woot!  And they have kindly donated a copy of it for me to give away today! 🙂 By commenting on this post 1 lucky winner can win an audiobook of Holidays with Jane: Christmas Cheer narrated by Tiffany Dougherty!


“Six talented authors make your Christmas lights twinkle with these modern-day adaptations of Jane Austen’s novels. Curl up with some peppermint tea and enjoy something special in your stocking this holiday season.”

In addition…

While doing a bit of closet-cleaning my mom recently found some C. E. Brock illustrations printed on fabric that she either ordered doubled of or the seller sent her double of for a gift she gave me 6 years ago!  Not sure which!


So it looks like we have some extras!  I thought I might be able to find some new homes for the prints… Maybe some Janeites I know might like to put them in frames like I did? 😉


The prints included are from Emma:

  • “I see very few pearls in the room except mine.” (Vol. III Chap. 2)
  • “I planned the match from that hour.” (Vol. I Chap. 1)
  • She left the sofa. (Vol. I Chap. 15)
  • Mr. Perry with a disengaged hour to spend with her father (Vol. III Chap. 13)

And as you see, I have doubles of the bottom illustrations (really not sure how that happened!) so I’ll be picking 2 winners for this prize!

And that’s not all…

In celebration of Monica Fairview’s new Regency Christmas Novella, A Merry Christmas Chase, I have 3 ebook copies to give away to 3 lucky readers!

    What a great Christmas/JA b-day surprise! I’d love to read Monica’s book!


    Happy birthday, Jane!


    Happy Birthday to my favorite author and so many great memories of reading as a child, “Pride and Prejudice” at 10 years of age. She has been my favorite author since and in the last five years I have gained many authors who do variations of her works.
    I don’t do audio but would love to have an ebook of Monica’s since I ran out of space in three bookcases so I had to get an ereader.
    Thank you for the great chance to win!
    Also Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year to all!


    Happy Birthday to Jane! Thanks for all the give-aways!
    Becky B.

    Happy Birthday Jane! Pride & Prejudice was the first book that I fell in love with and it remains as one of my favorites today!


    Your book tree was impressive. I have been tempted to attempt on when I’m dusting my bookshelves and then chicken out.

    Wow, generous birthday prizes. Thanks for the opportunity.


    Happy birthday, Jane. We’re all so sad that you were taken from us at such a cruelly early age but thanks so much for the legacy you left us and for inspiring so many others to write.

    Meredith, I loved your book tree last year! Hope you and Mr. B. have a wonderful time in Colombia – safe journey there and back.

    Thanks for the giveaway. If it’s possible to be entered for just one, please could my name be put into the hat for the prints as I already have the two books.

    Happy Birthday dearest Jane!! You have no idea hiw much you mean to me. Got me through some dark times & how I wish I could tell you in person.


    I’m celebrating Miss Austen’s birthday by re-reading P&P and reading the first volume of A tapestry of lives by Jean Sims. Thanks for the giveaway Meredith!


    Thanks so much! I really like the frames, what a wonderful idea. Please don’t enter me for Merry Christmas Chase as I already purchased, read and LOVED it!


    Happy birthday to the wonderful lady who keeps making us happy 241 years on 🙂
    Thanks for the wonderful giveaway, Meredith, and have a wonderful Xmas!


    What a lovely idea to have a giveaway, Meredith! Just what I needed on a cold winter night. And Happy Birthday, Jane Austen! What would we be without you?


    I hope you had a fantastic birthday, Jane! And thanks for everything! 😉 xo

    Lovely giveaway, Meredith! I hope you and Mr B have a fun and safe trip to #ChristmasinColombia! xo


    What potential for enjoyment these items are. And what an appropriate honor to Jane that such things are available. And, moreover, as a sewing fan of Jane and her offspring, I’d especially like the fabric pieces.

    Thank you for the possibilities.


    Happy Birthday Jane!
    These days I’m listening to the “Sense and Sensibility “soundtrack and the tracks are so sweet and peaceful that are ideal for the Christmas season and the celebration of your day 🙂
    Thanks Meredith for the generous giveaway! I would love to win the audio book of “Holidays with Jane ” not only for the stories but because exposing the ear to the english language would be very helpful for improving my english LOL!.
    Merry Christmas and happy days at Colombia! 😉


    Those prints are darling…I’d frame them, too!


    Happy 241st Birthday, Jane Austen!
    Lovely gifts you are giving in celebration.
    Thank you and a joyful holiday season to


    Thank you for the giveaway!


    I’d love to have the prints!!! Thanks for the chance.


    What a wonderful giveaway. Thank you. I already have Monica’s ebook, so please do not enter me for that drawing.


    I always love Christmad and Jane together❤


    Any of these would be a lovely gift. Thank you for the giveaway. Happy Holidays.


    The prints are the perfect thing to fill the sad, empty space on my bedroom wall in my small apartment at uni. And the e-books would be perfect for the long flights back home to Australia. And thanks for making it open worldwide.


    I’d be delighted to win any of these. Thank you for setting up the giveaway.


    Happy Birthday Jane! The prints are lovely, than you for this generous giveaway. I already have Monica Fairview’s Christmas story, so don’t count me for that one. 🙂
