Book Sampler: Jane Austen
16 Installments—Entirely free
Jane Austen—or just Jane, to some fans—has become synonymous with sharp wit, hopeful romance, and a singularly popular book called Pride and Prejudice. Tempting as multiple visits with Mr. Darcy may be for female readers, though, the delights of Jane Austen’s work are many. The Jane Austen Sampler contains the openings to all six of Austen’s novels, each of which offers a unique set of characters, romance, and dazzling dialogue. It also includes two non-fiction works about Austen, which contain her letters and the reminiscences of those who knew her. Whether you’ve never read Austen before, know only Pride and Prejudice, or have been a fan forever, you’re likely to discover (or rediscover) something wonderful in this Sampler.
What’s a Book Sampler?
Book Samplers combine short excerpts from different books, and they’re designed to make discovering and selecting new books on DailyLit easier. They are created around unique topics to help readers find new books in categories they enjoy. Each book installment featured in the Book Samplers contains a link that lets readers instantly access the book on DailyLit to read or send as a gift using DailyLit’s gift feature. Readers can also easily add the book to their To-Read list on the DailyLit site. Reading a Book Sampler is like browsing in your favorite section of the bookstore—it’s a fun way to find that next great book. We’ll be updating the Samplers as we get new books, so you can keep up with what’s new in your favorite categories.

Opening Lines (Experimental)
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.

Just a sample of Jane Austin makes you eager for more.
An engaging view of lives of a people and a culture that are "gone with the wind." So vividly written by this gifted author - no wonder she has endured! I plan to read every book she's ever written.
