Happy b-day, Janie girl! We still love ya.

Dana Huff

I have been wanting to read your book for some time, Laurie! Happy Birthday, Jane!

Oh! I've tried to win this book elsewhere, to no avail! :) Crossing my fingers that this time I'm lucky. :)

I do intend to give some Jane Austen books on Christmas. Thanks for doing the giveaway!


Oh, I love Jane Austen. Maybe I can sneak in a quick read of one of her books today in her honor.

Dr. Blondie

I love Jane Austen too! And I'd love to have a copy of your book!


Several years ago I asked for all the Jane Austen books for my birthday. My wish was granted, but I have to confess I haven't read all of them yet. Maybe reading "Confessions" will help me bring at least one of them to the top of the pile.


I'd love a copy of Confessions of Jane Austen Addict. Please put my name in your hat. Thanks ~ Nely

Time for confessions of a Jane Austen neophyte... I have only read two of them! I will add the rest to my 2009 to-be-read list. Thanks for sponsoring the contest!


Thanks for this great book. Looks fascinating.


I'm an evangelist for Austen - and I'd love to read Confessions.
Excellent choice!


Maybe this could be our next Book Club pick! I hope I win : )


Ooooo, my best friend and I are addicts and we haven't read the book yet! I'd love to give it to her as a gift!


My best friend and I are addicts and neither one of us has read the book! I'd love to give it to her as a gift;-)

I am setting up a personal Jane Austen-themed reading challenge for 2009 and am adding this book to the list. I'd love to win a copy. Thanks for the chance!

Jane Austen is my favorite author. (I had an Austen themed birthday cake last year.)

I'd love to read your book. It combines two of my favorite things -- Jane Austen and time travel!


I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this book. It is one that I recommend. But of course, anything Jane Austen or Jane Austen related is recommended!


This does seem like it would make a good book for a book club.

I'm glad I'm not the only Jane Austen addict. It's good identify others who are so afflicted!

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
