As some of you may know, it was recently my birthday. Although getting older doesn't make me super happy, what does make me happy is the fact that I am always the grateful recipient of some lovely new stuff :)
This year I had some lovely Austen-y things. I had a Pride & Prejudice phone cover and a kindle cover
The phone cover is from Etsy. The kindle cover was from Amazon. It's possible to get a kindle cover in the lovely peacock design but they don't do it for my kindle. You have to get the cover for the exact model of kindle you have as the kindle sits in a cradle which is the shape of the back of your kindle. I could have had a peacock design one where the kindle sticks to the back board but I didn't fancy sticking my precious kindle to anything! I wanted the cradle style instead. This was an early birthday present so I've been using it for a while and I'm happy with it so far, it's really pretty and as you can see from the photo showing the inner that it's just a tiny bit bigger than the kindle so it doesn't take up too much room in a bag, which is important as I carry it with me pretty much everywhere I go!
Though I've read all of Austen's main novels I didn't actually own all of them hard copy. In fact, I only own Emma, which is temporarily in a box in the attic due to a lack of storage space, and Persuasion and Pride & Prejudice, which I bought about 20 years ago. You may not believe it to look at them, because I am a neat reader, but these books have been read many, many times.
So I'd been after a really nice set of Austens, and look at what I have now!
And a side view...

And I also had some lovely kindle vouchers so I can buy some more JAFF to fill up the already over-stuffed kindle. I'm very lucky and grateful to have received such lovely stuff :)
