The "Jane Eyre" Giveaway

We have finished Jane Eyre!  Hurrah!  The book I thought would take three months to get through took almost 6, but that is entirely my fault, as I got much busier than I had anticipated.  Thank you so much for your patience!  And for all the wonderful discussions we've had -- I've very much enjoyed sharing my favorite book with you.  (And if you haven't quite finished it, no big deal. I'm happy to keep discussing it as long as you'd like.) 

To celebrate, I'm hosting a giveaway, as is my wont at the end of read-alongs.  PLEASE NOTE: This is open to everyone, world-wide!  Not just participants of the read-along :-)

Here are details on the stuff I'm giving away!  First, a tiny book containing a brief history of the Bronte sisters and abridged versions of all their novels.  And by "tiny" I mean it is 3.25" x 2.75."  

Eight beautiful bookmarks that I bought from Etsy shop Jane Eyre Collection.  (I admit it:  I bought all ten of their bookmarks and kept two myself!  They're wonderful.)  These are a great size, a little over 7" long and 2.5" wide, and they each come in a protective plastic sleeve.  Each bookmark pairs a quotation from the book with detail from an illustration, and on the back it shows the full illustration and tells the artist's name and the date it was painted/drawn.  If you click on the images here, you should be able to see them with enough detail to read the quotations.

And lastly, a pencil bag!  This is pale blue fabric with a black zipper at the top, and measures 9.75" by 6.5".  

This giveaway runs through the end of Saturday, November 19.  I will draw the winners on Sunday, November 20 and post the names of the winners that day, as well a notify them by email.

PLEASE make sure your information for the giveaway widget includes your current email address so that if you win a prize, you'll get the email informing you that you won! If you don't reply to my email by Sunday, November 27, I will choose another winner and award your prize to them instead.

This giveaway is open worldwide!

  1. I looooove the tiny pink Bronté sister's book! So charming. ;-)
    (I don't have a second choice seeing as I have tons of bookmarks and I don't need a pencil bag. But I like them too. ;-))

  2. That tiny book is adorable!! I also like that 3rd bookmark :)

    I did read the first few chapters of Jane Eyre but I always have several books going on at the same time so it sort of fell by the wayside. I also watched the Olivia de Havilland movie about the Brontes :)

  3. The tiny book is so cute!! And I like the 3rd and 7th bookmark :)

  4. Such fun prizes! I'm partial to bookmarks 2 and 7. I always read several books at once...and can always use another bookmark!!

  5. Eek, glad I didn't miss this! I haven't been reading blog posts this month because of NaNo...I'll have to catch up on the read-a-long posts I missed. All of these prizes are wonderful! I really love bookmark #1 and the tiny book. But I also love bookmarks #3, and #7, too. :)

  6. I would love to win bookmark number 4 for a family member! But I also love the little book! I would love to win both!

  7. Such lovely prizes! I am partial to bookmarks number 5 and 7. :)

  8. Ooh la thanks for this, Hamelette! My favourite two offerings on display are the little book <3 and bookmark #3 because it has the great tree from the book on it - and a lovely quote too!

  9. *sigh* I didn't participate in this read-along, but I can't resist a giveaway as gorgeous as this. (Plus, do you know how many giveaways are open to people living in Canada? Hardly any!)

    I have tons of bookmarks, so the book and the bag are my top two choices. :) Though I certainly wouldn't mind winning one of the bookmarks.


  10. Such a lovely giveaway and what a joy it's open worldwide ;-) I'm most interested in the pencil bag. I'm not sure I need it for pencils, but there are always things lying around to put in small handy bags! My second favourite would be the bookmarks.
