Okay ladies and gentlemen I don’t know if you have taken notice but I obviously have slipped into something more suitable for Hour 15. I’m now wearing more appropriate attire for perusing one of my treasured Austen volumes. Vintage Red Roses seemed more appropriate for this lovely illustrated edition of Emma. How about you? How are you reading? Cozy? Cute? Pajamas? I’m about to know…..
Those of you who have been readathon-ing with us for a few years might remember I always go all Janeite for one of my hosting hours. Every year I try to help my fellow Austen lovers get to enjoy an opportunity for a little more Jane in their life by introducing new works and authors of the Austenesque genre. This year I was able to get the fabulous Jane Odiwe to join us and she has been gracious enough to offer a copy of her newest work Jane Austen Lives Again to one lucky readathon reader.
The giveaway entry time period will only last for Hour 15. I will choose a winner randomly and announce at the end of the hour on this post. To enter simply submit a picture of how you are fashionably reading during this readathon in the comments below. Don’t be shy! This giveaway is INTL so everyone is welcome to participate. Please leave a twitter handle or email just in case so I can find you if you are the lucky recipient of a new copy of Jane Austen Lives Again. And if you are a Austen lover make sure and check out Austen Effusions where all of Jane Odiwe’s works can be viewed along with her fabulous blog Jane Austen Sequeals. We want to thank her again for generously trying to make one lucky readathoner’s night a little merrier.
So I simply can’t wait to see how you are lounging or styling for readathon! It’s all in good fun and as a librarian I just can’t help but want to give people books. So post your pics below. Then get a proper cup of tea and settle in for the next hour. I will be passing you off to your next co-host Dana so I do wish you good luck in the following hours. Remember we only get to do this together twice a year so let’s make it count. I’ll be reading with you.
