Happy 200th Anniversary Pride and Prejudice and Miss Austen

Anyone who knows me knows that Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice is my all-time favorite book. I cannot resist the smugness of Darcy and the independence of Elizabeth. They are destined to be together because they are both so willful and stubborn. No one else could ever endure them.

Several articles and blogs are being written on the centennial of this fantastic novel but I found these five to be the best of the lot. Please enjoy them.
