This February, be on the lookout for things that tie in to our On the Same Page book Persuasion. See if you can get a photo of each of the following items. So that we’ll know it wasn’t something you just Google searched, we want to see you in the picture as well! Print out your photos and turn them in before noon on Monday, February 22. We’ll see who can get the most to win a volume containing all of Jane Austen’s novels. If there are multiple people getting all of them, we’ll have to see who has the closest representation to what’s in the book!

See if you can get a photo of each of the following items:

1 – Tea Pot
2 – “Great House”
3 – Ship
4 – Letter
5 – Calling Card
