Jane Austen's Emma is oh-so Pretty! Book Giveaway



Wishing everyone a very happy holiday season this year! In the spirit of giving, I am giving away a favorite classic novel, YAY!




Have you heard? Emma was originally published 200 years ago on December 25, 1815!  So that readers would continue to view it as a new publication, the inside of the book was dated 2016, clever clever.


One lucky winner will win a gorgeous copy of Jane Austen's classic novel, Emma!

Graphic artist Leanne Shapton's signature painterly patterns grace the cover of this classic Jane Austen novel, giving us an oh-so-pretty excuse to re-read it!
  • Hardcover (That is not a dust jacket, just a gorgeous hardcover volume!)
  • Penguin Random House 

Beautiful, clever, rich—and single—Emma Woodhouse is perfectly content with her life and sees no need for either love or marriage. Nothing, however, delights her more than interfering in the romantic lives of others. But when she ignores the warnings of her good friend Mr. Knightley and attempts to arrange a suitable match for her protégée, Harriet Smith, her carefully laid plans soon unravel and have consequences that she never expected. With its imperfect but charming heroine and its witty and subtle exploration of relationships, Emma is often seen as Jane Austen’s most flawless work.²

  15. Beautiful new edition. It might make students want to pick it up to read as opposed to our old worn out editions we have at the library.

    My favorite Austen novel is Persuasion.
