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! 😊

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.

Ruthiella Cool! Thanks 🙏 1mo

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.

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”

In my opinion this is just a book about Victorian snobs talking about snobby things and I really don't like snobs.



"I used to hate Mr. Darcy, until I found out he has ten thousand a year, now i'm madly in love with him."

The unromantic linking of money and love are just too much for me, it just makes women of this time period seem pathetic.

It's possibly the most boring book I've ever read.

LitStephanie I love this book but think it's awesome that you have posted a rare negative review. 🤣 It is a comedy of manners, so if that's not your thing, you're going to hate it! 6mo

#Gossip is one of the most popular #hobbies in Jane Austen‘s books, sometimes engaged in over #embroidery. Whether it‘s who has moved from #city to #country, the cost of #conveyances and #houses, or whose #children are #dancing with whom at #balls, many a #friendship includes making sport of one‘s neighbours.

#200PnPcovers - #Dancing -

It's the night of the Meryton Assembly and the charming young man who has leased Netherfield is there with a small party, including the tall and handsome Mr. Darcy, who seems determined to dance every dance and thoroughly embrace the joys of a village party. Everyone is delighted with his friendliness and fun except for Elizabeth, who thinks he's a bit of a fop and probably a bad influence on her younger sisters. ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) This is a very fun version, with Darcy attending the assembly determined to annoy Caroline Bingley (we find out why later). I really enjoyed this one, although I did find it hard to get my head around Darcy unbending as much as he did in the first chapter! This was a version that was more about fun and fluff than it was about angst and sex, so I found it quite pleasant even if it was a bit silly. @CrowCAH @mabell 7mo
mabell Definitely difficult to imagine Darcy embracing the joys of a village party 😆 7mo
TheAromaofBooks @mabell - I will give her credit for somehow making it happen in a way that didn't completely change Darcy's character - kind of the whole point is that that evening ends up being way OUT of his character just because he's mad at Caroline and trying to make a point, but it was still a little hard to swallow LOL 7mo
CoverToCoverGirl Lol 🙂 can‘t really picture this, but I‘m trying too! 🤣😃 7mo
