Jane Austen Cover To Cover by Margaret C. Sullivan


Jane Austen…need I say more? This magnificent book is a must-have for all Janeites. Margaret C. Sullivan has put together 200 years of classic covers and fun facts. I enjoyed chatting all things “Jane” with Margaret including what she thought Jane would be reading today. Hint – shout-out to Jennifer Weiner!

    I would SO love to win a
    copy of this book. I like the
    book’s premise and the collection of covers is such
    a fun idea!

    This is on my wish list. Robin, thank you for the interview and for your promotion such an interesting title. 200 years in one volume. I think that requires a fuzzy blanket, bedroom slippers, softly played classical music, and a mug of hot chocolate. A good book is a good friend to share those creature comforts with. – Joy Dawn King at Jdawnking at gmail dot com

    I have this as an eBook, but it would be nice to have a hard copy. The artwork on some of the covers is amazing! I had never realized how many different publications of her works existed.

    What a treasure! Seeing the book covers over the years must be amazing! If I win or not, this will be a wish list for me! Thank you for the opportunity!

    Hi Robin,
    When I was in Bath for a month in 2003, I kept trying to imagine the Austen characters in their surroundings. I was with a University of Rhode Island study group, and when we were given an official tour of the city, Austen was mentioned, but the tiny museum in that town was glossed over. So I made a point of going back to it on another day and thoroughly enjoyed the exhibit, modest though it may have been (actually the Jane Austen Centre, it’s called now). This book looks fascinating and would add to my knowledge and understanding of this author’s wide-ranging influence and the ever-expanding influence of her books over the years.

  15. Laurie Lennon says:

    What a wonderful giveaway! Our book group, ‘Bookbinders’, in Barrington, meets tonight, and in December we all bring a wrapped copy of a book we enjoyed reading over the past year,to exchange. So if I win a copy, after reading it myself (and if I can bear to part with it) I’ll probably pass it along either to my Austen loving sister, or to our bookgroup member who rereads all of Austen every year! So, could I enter for 3 copies please!!

    • robinkall says:

      Hi Laurie! So nice to hear from the Bookbinders! Which book are you discussing tonight? I will enter you to win a copy! Also please share with the group my Tea with Jane Green 1-31. I can offer group discounts so please let me know if there is interest. best, Robin

      • Laurie Lennon says:

        Hi Robin,
        Will do. We are discussing ‘The Night Guest’ by Fiona McFarlane. I loved it. Really looking forward to this discussion. I’ll let you know about Tea with Jane Green. Busy time of year but we love your author events!

      • robinkall says:

        Thanks, Laurie -haven’t read that one yet. Glad to hear you loved it. Will add to the TBR pile!Thanks for sharing about the Tea. End of January should be a quiet time, no? Now it’s crazy..I’m looking ahead 🙂

  16. Stephanie H. says:

    In my younger years, I read all the Bronte sister’s books. Now I need give Jane a try…maybe they will be as good or better! Thanks so much, Robin, for your wonderful blog. I’ve enjoyed getting book recommendations from you. Wishing you a Happy Christmas, and a joyous New Year!
