Thanking my lucky stars that I found time to read today’s Shelf Awareness, which contains many wonderful items and information, including a birthday wish to Jane Austen as well as a link to a wonderful today-only gift from Sourcebooks.

Happy 235th birthday to Jane Austen, an occasion Sourcebooks is celebrating by offering 10 of its Austen-inspired novels and six illustrated versions of her work for free in e-book form today.

I immediately webbed on over to the Austen Prose blog, where I discovered a link-enabled list of ten free (for today only) Jane Austen-related books.  As the Austen Prose blog provides links to the Barnes & Noble version of these books only, I’ve added the links to the Amazon/Kindle versions of the books below, as well as links to both the Amazon and the B&N versions of the six major Austen Illustrated Editions ebooks that Sourcebooks is also offering free today only.

For today (December 16, 2010) only, Sourcebooks publishing company is offering free illustrated e-book editions of Jane Austen’s six major novels.  The Sourcebooks’ editions are unabridged and include the Brock illustrations from the 1890’s.

Here are shortened links to Amazon/Kindle versions of these six novels:
