Not my favorite reading month but I did see this in one of my discord chats & could not stop laughing
Happy P&P day! Pride and Prejudice was first published on the 28th of January 1813, and Jane Austen House shared a couple of fun playlists to celebrate - one for 1813 and one for 2023.
Early Christmas letter from my fellow birthday fairy @robinb.
Thank you so much, Robin. The bookmark is very fitting, I think. And the bracelet is perfect. I'm already wearing it.
This #scarf is one of the many Jane Austin gifts my mother has received from my daughter. P&P- themed items are always a safe bet. Of course, she will only display them, as she claims they are too special to actually use. #OminusOctober @Eggs @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks
Austen Mondays is here!!! Watching Devoney Looser (Austen expert extraordinaire) and Edward G. Petit (from The Rosenbach) discuss the first three chapters from P&P. This read through goes on for the next 24 weeks, if any of you #pemberlittens are interested (link below). 📘☕💎
"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that the first cracker in a packet of Cheddars will be broken." ?
I think that's the first line... ?
1. A light-hearted romance, either YA or contemporary. 🌹
2. Sure do. And it‘s just nice to reread favorites and fall in love with them all over again! ❤️
3. The tagged is a comfort one for sure! Between Elizabeth‘s sass, Mrs. Bennet‘s ridiculousness, and Darcy‘s transformation from massive tool to swoonworthy hero, it‘s just a good time. 📖
If you want to play, consider yourself tagged! 😊
Starting the day. Living in regency. #pemberlittens
I have arrived at The Governor‘s Mansion for my Pride and Prejudice weekend. There was a free bat included in the room. We had quite an adventure helping free it back outside. Tonight is the first event.
Hey, #pemberlittens - I thought some of you might be interested in this deep dive into P&P (and other things Austen) which is launching next month. Details are at rosenbach.org/events/austen-mondays/ and the accompanying Facebook group is already active. I've done other courses and things with/at the Rosenbach and they are super cool.
I admire this art almost as much as I admired this book♡ (not my art - I wish!) Took me long enough to read it all the way through, only took me 10+ years to pick it up again. It was lovely, consistently enjoyable, and such a well built world I wish I could return to♡
Jane Eyre, W.H., Frankenstein, 1984 are my favorites! Hoping to get P&P read this year. I actually can‘t remember if I‘ve ever read it.
I went to Cincinnati for the Jane Austen Fashion and Sensibility costumes.
Let‘s hear it for Colin Firth‘s Mr. Darcy!!! ❤️
Watching #VirtualJaneCon and catching up on #pemberlittens feed with my Austen mug today! The perfect end to my rather chaotic week.
Here's a link to our very own @REPollock's incredible bonnet video! I am in love with the Charlotte Lucas bonnet they created for the theater they work for. 😍
I also loved Dr. Elizabeth Rands' look at gender subversion in P&P! It's a happy day.
In my #BarnesAndNoble Classics email they put together book adaptations based on popular classics. Naturally #PrideAndPrejudice was one of them!
It only confirmed to me that they release ANOTHER edition of P&P with new cover art!!!!
My #PnPCovers collection will continue to grow 🥰
#Pemberlittens, some of these may be on our lists of books to read in upcoming months.
I don‘t like the voices she does, and I do like her as an actress so I really had high hopes. Idk if it was Covid Brain or what but I‘m almost 3 hours in, have no idea what‘s happening or who the people are and I have no urge to listen again 😂 maybe another day in another format. But I gotta bail
Am I gonna bail? I kinda want to bail? The voices are throwing me over the edge and I don‘t think a normal amount of this has made its way to my brain.
Should I persevere?
I did it! I joined the ranks of so many of you who have cool literary tattoos! After thinking about it for 4 years, last night I got a Pride and Prejudice quote on my forearm. 😁 I love it!

Now, we are celebrating #200PnPcovers, and our favorite #soldier has returned! This year, he is joined by Lydia, lovely and glowing, fresh from a #walk! (Poor Ted)
[Unfortunately, we could not get them in the same photo, as Lydia kept attempting to disrobe Wickham. 😆]
Congratulations, Cynthia! I‘m so glad I got to celebrate your 200 party with you! ❤️
Four years ago, Wickham came to town to celebrate Cynthia‘s #150PnPcoverparty ! (Poor Bella)
@Mitch thank you for a lovely gift!!! The book is amazing! It is so much the style I love!!! (Also Owen was able to translate the title on it- fun!) I think it is the epitome of what journals should look like- but I equally love the JA keychain 💛 White Rabbit magnet (seriously perfect) and beautiful bookmark. Sending you hugs and love and gratitude my friend🧡💛🧡💛
Using the traditional vows from the Book of Common Prayer (1549), we assume Mr. Bennett took Mrs. Bennett “in #sickness and in health … til death do us part” and it‘s death‘s parting the Bennetts fear. For then, “Mr. Collin‘s may turn you all out … as soon as he pleases”
