    Just posted a comment, but I think it went astray.

    Love the idea of Austen week. Will go RT link to your blog now. Are the giveaways open internationally? I already have a Shakespeare figurine, so I have my eye on the Austen one. I might have to start a collection.

  24. Comment by the book girl — September 23, 2009 @ 7:31 am

    No, sorry, all giveaways are US only….it gets very expensive shipping a lot of things internationally.

  25. Comment by Maria Grazia — September 23, 2009 @ 7:37 am

    I just want to be clear: “Wonderful blog!” refers to YOURS not mine!

  26. Comment by Maria Grazia — September 23, 2009 @ 7:39 am

    NEVER MIND! I’ll come back just to read your posting and I’ll write about the event in my blog the same, specifying that giveaways are US only. I just want to be clear: “Wonderful blog!” refers to YOURS not mine!

  27. Comment by Raquel — September 23, 2009 @ 8:10 am

    Just Tweeted about it here:

    I adore Jane Austen, so I think this is the most fabulous contest ever. Awesome! And hurrah for Jane Austen week. :)

    Okay, just did a little blog post about it. :)

  30. Comment by Burton MacGregor — September 23, 2009 @ 9:52 am

    As a Jane Austen scholar, I love to find new ways to get people interested in reading Jane.

  31. Comment by Lydia — September 23, 2009 @ 10:34 am

    Wow what a great contest! I feel as if I know Jane Austen through having read ACCORDING TO JANE by Marilyn Brant (commented above) but still have to admit “Pride & Prejudice” remains in my TBR pile. Maybe if I win something it will encourage me to move it higher in the pile!

    I’m trying to hold my own Austen-based giveaway for a signed manuscript of ACCORDING TO JANE and would love for you to enter!! http://novelwhore.wordpress.com/2009/09/16/according-to-jane-review-giveaway/

  32. Comment by Antonio — September 23, 2009 @ 10:36 am

    Wow! This is going to be a great contest! I really love Jane Austen — I’m writting my dissertation on her — so I’m coming back each day for the prizes :D.

  33. Comment by Antonio — September 23, 2009 @ 10:37 am

    Btw, I retweeted the message about the contest over here.

    I hope that helps :).

    OMG! hehehe I’ve seen the Jane Austen action figure in the Archie McPhee catalog so many times! I always swore if I found it in a store one day where I didn’t have to pay AMcP’s crazy shiping I would buy it! I still hope to come across it one day. I found your blog via my friend Maria’s blog… very neat!

  55. Comment by Patricia Barraclough — September 24, 2009 @ 11:17 pm

    What a lovely idea. Jane is special to many of us. My new boss at the library is a huge Jane Austen fan. The Pride and Prejudice DVD you are offering is the best version produce, in my opinion.
    I to wish I had found this site sooner.

  56. Comment by shelly — September 25, 2009 @ 11:39 am
