Back to the Books! Woop!!

Hosted by I Am a Reader, Not a Writer & Buried in Books...


Back to the Books sounds like fun... but really, getting back into the rhythm of school is WORK!!  Our family starts next week. I've got all the supplies and new clothes and I'm getting all four of 'em packed and ready for their first day back to school.

*sigh*

Summer is fun. I love the sunshine and the long days. Maybe we goof around too much, sure. I'll admit it. We need school to get rollin' again. But...

*sigh*

Fortunately for me, there's an awesome car show the second weekend in September. So we tolerate a few studious days and then we kick it at the beach with a bunch of hot rods. THEN we buckle down to the books. That little bit of extra FLING! feels very... adventurous. 

I'd like to share some of that... FLING! for this giveaway. Epic Fail is all about the wonderful story of Pride & Prejudice in a modern high school setting. It's hilariously fun!  I know... 'cause I'm offering MY book to be won. Yes, that means this is a used book by mua reading in the sunlit football practice fields.



I'll post my review while this giveaway's running. Believe me... if you like Pride & Prejudice, you'll like this book. If you haven't read Pride & Prejudice... you NEED this book!!  If you don't like Pride & Prejudice, I must ask you... why are you reading this?!  JK - if you don't like it, though, don't tell me unless you wanna see my Momma-Bear side. (You don't.)

If you're like me, you like to read Pride & Prejudice every year... only with so many wonderful reading choices out there, it's hard to reread anything. This book is PERFECT - it's new, and yet, it's veeerrrry Pride & Prejudice.

Don't worry about the title. Not a prediction of anything related to you and school. Just saying.

Wait, wait, wait... wait... WAIT!!

Did someone just say they don't own Pride & Prejudice?!  Please, speak up!!

Everyone with an eReader should have a copy. Or two, like me. (Is someone collecting copies?)

I have these two:

25 Favorite Novels (Anne of Green Gables/Avonlea, Pride and Prejudice, Persuasion, Emma, Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, Tess of the D'Urbervilles, Little Women, My Antonia, O Pioneers!, Scarlet Letter/Pimpernel, Wives & Daughters, +)  Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin\

Click on 'em to go to the Barnes & Noble site to pick 'em up for $.99. Yes... less then a buck!! No excuses. Hunt down some change in the couch and get yourself a copy of this awesome book!!

I also found this tempting morsel while finding those links for you:

Complete Works of Jane Austen, With Biography (Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Mansfield Park, Persuasion, Northanger Abbey, Early Works)

It's $2.99, which is a bit more spendy, but "complete works of Jane Austen" is mega-enticing!!

Can't leave out the Kindle peeps:

$.99

This has worked in my favor, I tell ya. I'm passing out the classics like school started already!!  PLUS offering the chance to WIN a little bit of fun. To go with all that hard studying. 



This is an international giveaway - I'll pay up to $10 shipping. Moon residents will have to foot the remaining bill. Must be 13 to enter. See all my giveaway rules under About Me (as well as a real picture of me. You thought I was a flower? Never mind, then.)

  11. I own 2 hard copies, one ecopy and multiple dvd's including the BBC's version. I didnt know that's what this book was about! I really kind of passed by the book without reading it's synopsis on goodreads because the cover didn't grab my attention. Now, I want it!

  12. 2 copies! But about 50 different P&P retellings. Love Jane Austen and her works! Great giveaway idea!

    1. 50?! Oh... you must share the scoop on 'em all!! Sophia Rose, would you do a post comparing 'em?! I had no idea 50 even existed!!!!

  13. I have one copy of EVERY Jane Austen book (except Lady Susan). Naturally, P&P is my favorite, though Emma and Northanger Abbey are also up there. It's rare to find a P&P adaptation that retains the same wittiness as the original!

  20. I own one copy, paperback, I`ve read it till somewhere in the middle and gave up ,because I`ve always had trouble reading classics, even scary ones, like Edgar Allan Poe. I don`t know, it`s strange I guess :D I have about ten classic books in english on my shelf and I`m still buying new, but never really read much.
    BUT I DID like Epic Fail (read in epub), sweet and funny, and interesting :)
    Thanks for this giveaway!

  39. I have a copy for my kindle, paperback, paperback of the zombie edition. Then for my viewing pleasure I have the bbc mini series and the more recent movie. I figure you can't have too many versions. Epic fail has been added to my growing list of books to pick up on amazon. Can I get a few more hours added to every day?

  46. about five...I love that book (The sad thing is that I have about twice as many copies of Persuation)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Thanks for the giveaway :)

    I own 1 copy which I haven't read yet(I know -- 100 lashes with a wet noodle). I have started the movie starring Keira Knightly a few times but, for whatever reason, am never able to finish it. I also saw Bride & Prejudice starring Aishwarya Rai and Naveen Andrews. I really enjoyed that movie and soundtrack.

    I think I have several other books by Austen buried in boxes and recently won Sense & Sensibility.

    Btw, I don't re-read books either. There are just too many good books out there.
