Weekly Book Giveaway: The Annotated Northanger Abbey, by Jane Austen

This week we're giving away a copy of The Annotated Northanger Abbey, written by Jane Austen and edited by David Shapard. According to his official bio, Mr. Shapard has a Ph.D. in European History from the University of California at Berkeley, and specialized in the eighteenth century. I've read his work before; like most annotated editions, his writing tends to state information as indisputable fact, even when there might be room for other interpretations. It's annoying, but I'm always up for more scholarly analysis of Northanger Abbey, so... what the hell.

As always, this contest runs Monday through Friday. To enter, just send us an e-mail connected to a valid address. Complete rules and regulations can be found here.

NOTE: We think we've fixed the problems with the email page, but if your message is marked un-deliverable, you can send us an email directly using the address "info [at symbol] wordcandy [dot] net" (minus all those spaces, of course).

I love the cover art--I'm really into this line's version of 'Emma', too (although at first I thought it looked a leeetle bit like a crime-scene photo)...
