Misty at Book Rat is hosting Jane in June, a celebration of all things Jane Austen. Well, we all know that Jane wrote tons of great characters, so it seems natural to tie Jane in June in to my Character Connection meme!
The short version:
- Contest begins Thursday, June 3
- Write a post (non-bloggers can use each week's comments) about how much you love (or even love to hate) an Austen character
- Link up to my Character Connection post
- You must link to my blog in your post and mention Character Connection
- You'll gain an entry every week you do this, for a max of 4 entries
- Two winners will be chosen using random.org
- Contest ends at midnight EDT on June 29
- There are two prize packs to choose from
- You are eligible to win if you're over the age of 13 and if Book Depository ships to you
There won't be any forms to fill out or anything. I'll track it through the links. Just make sure I can contact you through your blog or your profile.
If you haven't read any Austen, but you think you'd like to at least give her a try, this is a good time to get started! The contest runs for about a month, so you have plenty of time to read one of her novels and write a post!
There are two prize packs up for grabs, and if Book Depository ships to you, you're eligible to win. That's as international as I can be without breaking the bank!
The first will be for Jane Neophytes. It will include:
- This paperback edition of Persuasion,
- A Jane Austen Journal (the quote on the cover says, "We have a better guide in ourselves, if we would attend to it, than any other person can be.")
- This cute button.
The second will be for Janeites. This one will include:
- A paperback copy of Captain Wentworth's Persuasion: The Jane Austen Classic Retold Through His Eyes by Regina Jeffers
- A set of notepads designed to look like dance cards from balls at various Austen locations
- This Austen quote button("The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel must be intolerably stupid.")
Start planning those posts! The contest will begin next Thursday, June 3rd!
Be sure to follow along at Book Rat all next month too. She has tons of great posts and giveaways lined up! Okay, you really should follow her anyway because she's one of my favorite bloggers, but definitely follow her next month if you're an Austen fan.
