Pride and Prejudice 200

January 27, 2013 marks the 200th Anniversary of the publication of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Personally I think it’s one of the best novels ever written. It’s one of the books that when I dip into it to try to find a quote for a project, I suddenly look up and I’ve read several chapters and find myself needing to read the entire thing again. I have several editions of the book in my collection, including one illustrated by Helen Sewell who also was one of the first two illustrators of the Little House series.

As part of the celebration they have selection Pride and Prejudice as the 2013 Linn Area Reads book. Read more about it here:
