Soon we'll be sharing our favorite sites for holiday gifts for writers. But I couldn't wait to share this site. If you are a Jane Austen fan, no doubt you'll order one of these Pride and Prejudice games for yourself and one for a friend. Pick a couple from the novel and maneuver them through town and the countryside. Experience Regency Life, answer questions about the book, then race to the Parish Church to marry and win the game!
That's it for this weekend's edition ....see you this week!
