Please welcome, Laura from That Librarian Lady!
Laura is a high school librarian and book nerd who blogs about her reading life at That Librarian Lady.
I’ve always loved reading, but I got out of it a bit when I started college. My last year of college, I picked up Pride and Prejudice for the first time and fell in love. I promptly read all of her other novels before moving on to similar classics. Suddenly, I had rediscovered the joy of reading again. I have no doubt that Jane Austen’s books relit that fire. I probably wouldn’t be a librarian had I never picked up Pride and Prejudice.
Since then, I’ve started collecting different editions of her novels, particularly editions with gorgeous covers. I really love the illustrations on the Penguin Deluxe Editions so I’ve decided to give away a set of those for Austen in August.
The set includes Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma, and Persuasion. Good luck!

You don’t start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it’s good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it. That’s why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence. Octavia E. Butler
