Last week's guest at My Blogger Buddies weekly event was Laurel Ann at Austenprose. Did you miss my interview? I hope you didn't. Laurel Ann generously decided to give away two Austen based books the winners could choose from a rich and intersting list of titles.
The two lucky winners are
2. Alexa Adams
Could you e-mail me back picking up your favourite title from the list and adding your address?
Thanks Laurel Ann for taking the time to answer my questions, for being my guest and for this great giveaway!
2. A TRIP TO A NEO - GOTHIC CASTLE
(Castello Massimo di Arsoli - Rome)
Yesterday it was a warm sunny spring Sunday and in the afteroon I went on a very pleasant trip, to a small old town nearby, surrounded by green mountains and towered by an old renaissance palace later on re-stylished as a gothic castle in the 19th century. It is an impressive place, owned by the heirs of an ancient noble Italian family, the Massimos. It is usually closed but yesterday it was opened to the public with free entrance. How could I miss the chance? Many thanks to the dear friend who invited me to join her there. It has been a unique picturesque afternoon walk.
It'd the perfect location for a period movie. Any idea? Have a look at the pictures and at the official site ... which title would you suggest?
3. MANSFIELD PARK AT MY JANE AUSTEN BOOK CLUB
I've posted the solution of the game on Edmund Bertram's timeline and some notes I've been preparing for our next meeting on Friday. Mansfield Park is a controversial novel, maybe one of the least loved among Austen's works, anyhow very interesting each time I happen to leaf through it. I've listed some of the themes I'd like to discuss with my mates. Have you got any other suggestion?
