christmas is coming

Hence, it's that time of year again... time, once again, for us to faithfully alert all our Gentle Readers of Oxford's annual sale of their beautiful 6 volume $150 hardback set of The Oxford Illustrated Jane Austen... FOR FORTY DOLLARS.

In case you have a bit of fluff in your ear, allow me to wax repetitious:
SIX volumes. Hardback. Dustcovers. 2832 pages. Illustrated. Oxford University Press. For a mere forty smackers.

Yes, these are in the Beehive library. Yes, they belong in your library, too. Of course they do. So start dropping hints now. You might even buy a few to give to others, but we have found this only works if you already own a set for yourself... otherwise, you'll get all greedy and keep them. Yes, you will. You know you will.

Queenie, thanks to the last time you posted this, I got this set of books. I ::shamed face:: had never read Jane Austen before. (Not sure how I got thru school without having done so, but there you go).

I have now read the entirety of her works, and I am SOOOO glad I did! Those are just.... they're just... Oh, I just love the way she writes. And her sense of humor. And I love having this set of works that was so painstakingly put together.

GREAT TIP everyone!!! You can NOT beat this price - go, go, go. Order, order, order!

here is a little math excercise for you all...

i am working at this very moment + I am going to make approximately $33.75 on this shift + This number is dangerously close $40 + I like Jane Austen + very much + I can't ever get enough copies of Pride and Prejudice + this is an extra shift anyway = One set of The Oxford Illustrated Jane Austen on my ever-growing book shelf. ::cheesy smile::

"Um Mom, did you see the latest post on the Beehive?"

Consider it done. I love good books and good bookshelves. Or a bed to throw books on.

Don't forget the pile of books sitting by the bookshelf because the poor bookshelf can hold no more books.

I really wanted this when you mentioned it last year. Sounds nice...

My blog just went pink for October in your honor!
