E-book Giveaway - Jane Austen's Birthday!

Free E-books from Sourcebooks on December 16 - One Day Only

From Leah Hultenschmidt of Sourcebooks:

December 16 is Jane Austen’s birthday and as the world’s leading Jane Austen publisher, Sourcebooks, is throwing a huge one-day-only birthday book bash. We will be offering special ebook pricing on ten of the best Austen-inspired novels – and what better pricing could there be than free?

On December 16 only, the following bestselling ebooks will be available free through our retail partners (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Borders, etc):

Mr. & Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy: Two Shall Become One by Sharon Lathan 
Eliza’s Daughter by Joan Aiken
The Darcy’s & the Bingley’s by Marsha Altman
Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife by Linda Berdoll
What Would Jane Austen Do? by Laurie Brown
The Pemberley Chronicles by Rebecca Collins
The Other Mr. Darcy by Monica Fairview
Mr. Darcy’s Diary by Amanda Grange
Lydia Bennet’s Story by Jane Odiwe
Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy by Abigail Reynolds 

But the party doesn’t stop there, because also for one day only, we are offering free illustrated ebook editions of all six of Austen’s novels. These special editions include the full novels plus the legendary color illustrations of the Brock brothers originally created to accompany the books in 1898.

Even if you don't have a kindle you can download them onto your computer. I'm thrilled that my naughty Lydia is included in this set of wonderful books!
Here's the link to claim your books from Sourcebooks

Hello everyone,
I'm sorry I forgot to include the link to Sourcebooks - click the link at the end of the blog post! Apologies!

Jane Odiwe said...

Hi Everyone,
I'm not sure that is the right link - I'm trying to find out for you - please bear with me,
So sorry,

So far, the free books are only in iBooks and Nook.

For those who have iBooks, all the books mentioned are free (except for Mansfield Park).

B&N has the Austen-inspired novels free too. I posted the links on my blog, but you can just do a search on B&N.

Shoot - I need them for Kindle and I had hoped Amazon would have them, but they all appear to be listed there at normal price.

Jane Odiwe said...

I'm so sorry, I had assumed we would be able to get them on kindle. Thank you so much for letting me know about ibooks and Nook, but I'm sure people will be disappointed about not being able to get them on kindle.

Laura Henderson said...

For iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch users, Kindle, Nook, and several other eReaders offer free reader apps for those devices.

To circumvent the missing Kindle versions, I downloaded B&N's Nook app for iPod, and away I went! I now own all of the free books with the exception of Eliza's Daughter, which I wasn't able to find on B&N (may not have looked hard enough).

Thanks so much, Jane O., and Jane A!

Jane Odiwe said...

Oh good for you! I'm so glad you managed to get them.
I long for an ipad or iphone - maybe Father Christmas will be kind.

Jane Odiwe said...

For those of you having trouble with the e-book offer Sourcebooks have just informed me they are extending it for another day - hurray!
