Google's Doodle in honour of Jane Austen's birthday
It was Jane Austen's 235th birthday yesterday, Dec 16. How did you celebrate it? On my part, I went to the Amazon Kindle Store and downloaded 16 free e-books either by Jane Austen or inspired by her books. You can still download them for free today, Dec 17!
The amazing Sourcebooks has decided to provide these titles for free in conjunction with Jane's birthday. Here are the titles:
Special e-book editions of Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Sense and Sensibility, Northanger Abbey, Persuasion and Mansfield Park.
Eliza’s Daughter by Joan Aiken
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
There was some confusion yesterday (Dec 16) like the books still had prices on Amazon even though they were supposed to be free for a day, so I was hesitant about downloading them.
But it had been sorted out when I checked this morning. Go ahead and download them today wherever e-books are sold. Enjoy!
