Hi Drey! I got the e-mail too and think it's a wonderful treat for book lovers, especially those who adore Jane Austen's books.

However, I've checked on Amazon and the books mentioned are not stated as free. There are still $9.99 or $7.99 prices, so it's a bit confusing. Was wondering if anyone else had tried getting the e-books free from Amazon? Thanks!

Hi Josette ~ Apparently some of the retailers weren't quite ready for this, but it should be fixed now! Sorry for the confusion. Sourcebooks is now offering these free for another day, to make up for it. :)

Glad to hear they will be free another day! I don't know if I still would have time to download today! Happy Birthday Jane!
