GIVEAWAYS, CHALLENGES & AWARDS

1. GIVEAWAY AT MY JANE AUSTEN BOOK CLUB


If you entered the giveaway on my Austen-dedicated blogspot page or you are just curious to know who the winners are CLICK HERE and  ... discover it! Talking Jane Austen part I and part II was an interesting event on My Jane Austen Book Club thanks to Laurie Viera Rigler. Waiting for her third novel!!!

2. MY EVERYTHING AUSTEN CHALLENGE  II



Last year I took part in the Everything Austen Challenge I at Stephanie's Written Word and I posted about the six tasks I chose here on Fly High.  This year, instead, for the second Everything Austen event I decided to post at My JA Book Club, where I usually write reviews and  interviews focused on Austenesque matters. 
I've just completed my first task, watching CLUELESS (1995) , loosely based on EMMA (1815). HERE's my review.

3. AWARDS

I've recently received two new awards from two of my very kind  blog pals. Thank you, ladies! I'm flattered. Honoured!!!

I'm glad to pass The Sunshine Award  (TSA)  &/OR The Versatile Blogger Award (TVB) to the following blogs. I hope they will proudly show them on their sidebars!!! And if they do not want to pass them along, never mind. Honest.

ONLY TVB AWARD:

Oh dear, I forgot to press save on my last comment, I think....
I'm emerging from beneath all my mountains of reports and letterwork to thank you, Maria for the award! My blog has been sadly neglected of late thanks to work, but I have been enjoying reading everyone else's posts. I may find some time and inspiration to write a blogpost very soon!

Traxy said...

Oh, why thank you very much! :)

Lua said...

Congratulations on your awards and thank you so much for passing it along to me! :)

Sarah P. said...

How lovely of you! Thanks so much for the awards!

A silly question, though. How do I post it on my sidebar? I'm a bit clueless about these things...

MARIA GRAZIA said...

@Sarah P.
Save the picture in your computer from this post. Then, just add it as "picture" to your sidebar , as you did with The tempest cover.

Sarah P. said...

Thanks, Maria.

By the way, I'll be making a story post very soon...probably within the half-hour. Just thought I'd let you know! :)

MARIA GRAZIA said...

Thank you, darling, I'll read it tonight! I'm off again in a while and be back this evening. It's quarter past 2 p.m. here. And terribly hot.
Thanks! MG
