Book Give-away 'Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict'

This week I'm doing a give-away for a book that I recently read and enjoyed - 'Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict' by Laurie Viera Rigler
I wasn't asked to promote this book, it was one that I just bought on my own and decided to pass along.

It's the story of a modern gal named Courtney, she's got problems in her life and an obssession with Jane Austen books. She wakes up one day to find herself in the body of a girl named Jane Mansfield, living during the time of Jane Austen.
Luckily, because she has read Jane Austen books so obsessively, she knows how to behave in that society, for the most part. She has to deal with the limitations that women faced during that time (not being able to earn money, own property, travel alone and sometimes having to marry for financial comfort rather than for love) deal with a really nasty new mother who threatens to have her commited and is anxious to get her married-off, get by without knowing anything about Jane and the 2 men in her life, and thinking about the problems that she left behind in her own life - which she does not know how to get back to.
The book was fun to read and halfway through the book I felt that it was too short. Luckily the follow-up to the book - 'Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict' will be out in 2009.

If you are a Jane Austen fan you'll probably enjoy this book too.

If you'd like to sign up to win it, you can post a comment below or send me an email - dvintage@comcast.net
A winner will be chosen on 12/7.
