    Again your generosity and that of your friends is amazing Meredith. A lovely selection of books. Obviously I’m in the UK so if I’m lucky enough to win I would love the e book of Pam’s He Taught Me To Hope.


    You have a lot of my favorites here..particularly the Carrie Brebris one from her wonderful series.
    I am not familiar with the biography and would love to own that!
    Happy November.


    Thank you to all for this wonderful giveaway! I would love to receive The Perfect Bride for Mr. Darcy. I have obviously not read this one, and the cover is just so beautiful!


    What a lovely gesture! I love it when fans and sweet bloggers like you spread the love around. Don’t put me in the drawing for I have most of these great stories. 🙂


    Thanks for the lovely ARC giveaways. I would love any of the P&AP related books.


    Love the holidays almost as much as I love everything Jane Austen. So I would love the chance to read Christmas at Pemberley. (I’m an international reader)


    Thanks for the nice giveaway! I’d love Regina’s “Christmas at Pemberley” or Pam’s “He Taught Me to Hope”.



    Thank you so much for the opportunity to win one of these books.I’m an international reader and would dearly love to read Regina Jeffers’ Christmas at Pemberley.
    Cheers! ☺️


    Hi Meredith,

    Thank you for the chance to win one of these books.
    I’m an international reader and would love to read Regina Jeffers’ Christmas ay


    What a generous giveaway with many books I have never read. Below are the books I would like to have the chance to win, in order of my preference. Thanks so much for the giveaway.

    The Perfect Bride for Mr. Darcy by Mary Lydon Simonsen
    Christmas at Pemberley by Regina Jeffers
    Austentatious by Alyssa Goodnight
    North by Northanger by Carrie Bebris


    Thanks so much Meredith for thinking of those of us overseas. If I happen to be one of the lucky ones I’d like
    North by Northanger by Carrie Bebris.


    Thank you so much, Meredith, for your wonderful ARC giveaways!! I have already read North by Northanger (loooove this series!!), but I’d be *thrilled* to have any of the rest! 😀

    Have a lovely day!!

    Susanne 🙂


    We are thankful for you, your thoughtful reviews, and the passion and energy you bring to your blog and the JAFF universe! Thank you for another fantastic giveaway. I’d love to be entered to win North by Northanger. 🙂


    Thanks Meredith, for thinking of our international friends with an e-book offer. One book I’d love to own is Regina Jeffers’ Christmas at Pemberley. If that is already taken, then The Perfect Bride by Mary Lydon Simonsen is my second choice. In fact… I’ll take anything.

    We are thankful for you Meredith [and Mr. Bingley too, of course] for all that y’all do for the JAFF community and for us that read your blog and follow your website. We are blessed by your kindness and generosity and joyful spirit. Blessings my dear for you and yours during all the holiday celebrations.


    Thanks Meredith for another generous giveaway. I’d love to win The Perfect Bride for Mr. Darcy by Mary Lydon Simonsen*. But any other book on the list would be great as well.


    This is such a fantastic treat each quarter with the opportunity to add a book I haven’t read to my shelf. Thanks so much, Jean, Rain and Meredith. I would be interested in PO Dixon’s Darcy and the Young Knights Quest or Library of Luminaries: Jane Austen.


    What a fantastic giveaway, Meredith. Thank you. Library of Luminaries would be my pick.


    So many great books I have yet to read… Christmas at Pemberley is on my wishlist. Please count me in for the ebook, thank you!


    These giveaways are lots of fun each quarter, and I usually bow out because I’m pretty much strictly an e-book reader. But this time since I already have a couple of Carrie Bebris books only in paper it would be lovely to have hers. Or the Library of Luminaries, because the illustrations seem to lend themselves to a paper browsing book, not unlit the baby lit books.

    And Meredith, I’m going to sound like a broken record but we’re all so very thankful for you and your blog.


    Christmas at Pemberley and the illustrated biography are the only ones I haven’t read. Thanks for the chance to win!


    My choices would be The Perfect Bride for Mr. Darcy, Christmas at Pemberley, or
    Library of Luminaries: Jane Austen – An Illustrated Biography!!


    Thank you for your generosity!


    I would love a hardcopy of He Taught Me to Hope. It is nice to spread the joy of a good book.


    “Tis the season to be be generous and giving books away – thanks, Meredith. I do not have “Library of Luminaries”, so that would be my choice. Thanks again, and Happy Thanksgiving!


    these sound like a fabulous giveaway!

    since i have alot of the books already ill go for either austentatious or library of illuminaries


    Thank you so much for thinking about your international readers, Meredith. You are truly generous and kind. I would love to have Library of Luminaries: Jane Austen – An Illustrated Biography.


    I am thankful for my life,, the ability to hear,see,read, not to mention friends and family. I have to say that all artists make our lives rich and that includes writers. Such a WONDERFUL giveaway.


    Would love to have a copy of Library of Luminaries as I own all the others!


    Either Austenacious or Library of Luminary.

    Thank you for giveaway offer.


    Wonderful selection of books! I would love the mystery North by Northanger
    by Carrie Bebris. Thank you for this giveaway.


    I would love to read North by Northanger or the Library of Luminaries. Thank you for the wonderful opportunity!


    I’ve been AWOL for far too long, Meredith. Life etc! Just trying to do a bit of catch up now. Would love a copy of North by Northanger by Carrie Bebris if I’m lucky enough to be chosen as your international winner.


    I’m intrigued by North by Northanger!
