    I love Jane Austin and I use to have all her books but I only have three now. I would love to have them all again.

    I love these books! 🙂

  4. I wish I had wall-to-wall book shelves so I could fill them with beautiful classics like those above! Wonderful giveaway.

    What’s wonderful about the above books is that they really illuminate the strength of the female protagonist. A generation and a world apart, it would be so wonderful for my mother to have the opportunity to, for the first time, read such gorgeously done editions of these classics/anthologies. My first memory of my mother that was literary was us reading a beauteous edition of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Though Denslow’s illustrations are iconic and represent the OZ brand definitively, I loved the Hildebrandt-illustrated one I grew up with. I associate the plucky, no-nonsense heroine who seeks practical solutions to fantastical adventure-crises with my mom, a brave and steadfast individual — and my Dorothy!

    I have never read these books. It would be nice to finally read these classics.

    I am a Mom with a 33 year old daughter and a 5 year old grandson. As a math teacher, I never took the time to read any of these classics unless they were assigned in a class. I have not read any of these books and would love to do so. This would give me a chance to take a little time for myself and do a little reading that is not math and science oriented. I would now be able to discuss these books with my sister-in-law who has her doctorate in women’s studies.
