We celebrated Jane Austen's Birthday with friends and mates all over the blogosphere just one week ago ( HERE ). The Soiree Katherine Cox at November's Autumn and I organized was a great success thanks to the enthusiasm and generosity of all the participants and, of course, to the positive response of so many readers. Thanks a lot, everybody!
I enjoyed all the gifts for Jane and all the posts. It was great to hop from blog to blog and discover what each participant had created as a present to our beloved Jane!  I'm more and more convinced that Janeites are a very special, huge , international community whose main peculiarity is ... love for beutiful things!
Let's go on spreading the love for Jane Austen and her work and ...till next year for another joyful celebration.

Here's the name of the lucky winner in the giveaway contest  on My Jane Austen Book Club,  which  I picked up through

She chose Captain Wentworth Card among my birthday gifts for Jane...

...  Murder Most Persuasive  by Tracey Kiely as her prize ... 

 ... and her name is ... GABRIELLA PARISI. 

Congratulations, Gabriella!!!
