Last Update: The books are now available. Remember they will be available tomorrow as well. I got them all! I’m so excited!
Update: This issue is still being worked out but there is good news. Sourcebooks apologizes for the confusion, etc and has extended this offer for all day tomorrow, December 17, as well.
Note: Currently Sourcebooks is working to fix the situation with the ebooks not being available everywhere. Either check back here or periodically check back with your favorite retailer to see when the books become available free. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Today is Jane Austen’s 235th birthday and Sourcebooks is celebrating in style!
Sourcebooks, the world’s leading publisher of Jane Austen fiction, is offering a unique deal to readers who want to celebrate Jane by reading special editions of all six of Austen’s beloved novels in a 21st century format.
Special e-book editions of Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Sense and Sensibility, Northanger Abbey, Persuasion and Mansfield Park will be available for free for one day only. These celebratory editions include the full novels, plus the legendary color illustrations of the Brock brothers, originally created to accompany the books in 1898.
In addition to the Jane Austen classics, readers can also enjoy these bestselling Austen-inspired novels. The following bestselling e-books will be free on December 16th in honor of her birthday:
The Darcys & the Bingleys by Marsha Altman
Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife by Linda Berdoll
What Would Jane Austen Do? by Laurie Brown
The Pemberley Chronicles by Rebecca Ann Collins
The Other Mr. Darcy by Monica Fairview
Mr. Darcy’s Diary by Amanda Grange
Mr. & Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy: Two Shall Become One by Sharon Lathan
Lydia Bennet’s Story by Jane Odiwe
Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy by Abigail Reynolds
Available wherever eBooks are sold.
I’d say this is definitely worth checking out! I don’t have all of these books yet and besides that these are celebratory editions! I want them!
