Happy (Belated) Birthday, Jane Austen! and Free Kindle Books

While we are discussing free Kindle books, Jane Austen's birthday was yesterday (Happy Birthday, Jane! I'm so happy you were born!) and to celebrate, many Kindle editions of her book were free and still are today. Many other modern interpretations of her books are free, too.  Here's a list.  Please confirm price before buying because these are subject to change at a moment's notice.

Jane's own titles, which would be free from many sources but the illustrated versions are nice to have and not as commonly available:

Emma: The Illustrated Edition Mansfield Park: The Illustrated Edition Persuasion: The Illustrated Edition

Northanger Abbey: The Illustrated Edition Sense and Sensibility: The Illustrated Edition Pride and Prejudice: The Illustrated Edition

And the other modern titles are, read at your own risk, but they are free and usually not:

Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy What Would Jane Austen Do? Lydia Bennet's Story

Mr. & Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy: Two Shall Become One Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife Mr. Darcy's Diary

Eliza's Daughter Other Mr. Darcy Darcys & the Bingleys

And while we are here, what are your favorite Jane Austen novels? I am always torn between Pride and Prejudice (my first), Persuasion and Emma although I love them all and own them in paper and electronic versions as well as almost any film adaptation available on DVD.  I'm incorrigible when it comes to Jane Austen (and Jane Eyre actually).

  1. Again, thanks for the heads-up! While downloading these, I found another free Kindle Austen-wannabe novel -- Pemberley Chronicles by Rebecca Ann Collins.

    My favorite Austen book is "Northanger Abbey".
