  1. Thanks, Laurel Ann, for running this great giveaway, and to all who participated. Winners: if any of you are going to be attending the JASNA AGM next month, I’d be happy to sign your copies!


  2. Oh, thank you for offering the chance to win this book! I’m very sick now while under treatment for Lyme Disease and wanted this book but couldn’t get it since I lost my job because of my Lyme. What a blessing! Thank you, thank you!


  3. Didn’t leave a comment before, because I felt hesitant to express my feelings about Miss Austen just to win a book. I don’t know if I consider myself a Janeite, but I do know this: when I read the account of how Jane Austen continued writing until she could no longer hold a pen, and then struggled on in pencil, I don’t need to look any further to find inspiration for what it means to be a Writer. She stands at the top of my list of authors, innovators–and heroines.


    1. Wow, Keith! You just inspired me just by reading the way you wrote about Jane Austen. I hadn’t thought about the fact that she probably held a pencil as she was dying. That makes the sorry image I have in my head even sorry-ier. She was one of a kind and it has been my privilege to have been reading her for close to 20 years. BTW, all of us Janeites make comments whether or not we already have the book. We just love to express our thoughts about her and her genius. But, if I already have the book being gifted, I will usually make a good comment and then say that I already have the book so please don’t put my name in the drawing. Please join in with us here. We have loads of fun and occasionally disagree, politely, though. And you wouldn’t be the only guy. We’ve got Jeffrey who is eloquent and discovered JA just a few short years ago and has leapt in with panache. Jeffrey, if you are reading this, please pipe up now!
