Do You Believe In Coincidences?

Today I was browsing in a book store with my hubby Chris, and while I was in the Jane Austenish area I picked up a copy of Sense and Sensability and Sea Monsters by Jane Austen and Ben H. Winters, just to show him. I'd heard a bit about this book, and another in the same vein called Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith. I'm participating in the Everything Austen Challenge, hosted by Stephanie, so these Austen mashups have not escaped my notice.

Imagine my surprise when I got home, checked my emails, and found that I had won a "gently used" copy of Sense and Sensability and Sea Monsters from Ashley at Ashley's Library! Spooky coincidence...or something more???

Thanks Ashley!

Spooky! I'm so behind on my Google Reader so I'm a bit late commenting. I sent the book to you and I hope you enjoy it!
