Pride and Prejudice readers, this is for you

Jane Austen_May Contest
(Photos and prizes from The Jane Austen Centre in Bath, UK)

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.

Happy reading!

    I have read the book, classy at best but the film adaptation was great as well, especially Keira Knightley starring in it!

    Good contest but I don’t do long reviews!

    i’ve actually been to the jane austen house in bath a couple of years ago when i visited the UK! didn’t explore it, though. we toured the roman baths instead. (that’s why the place is called “bath”) :P

    bath is a lovely place!
