Found this mismatched set of Folio Society Jane Austen in a junk store. I told Shopkeeper that I collected Jane Austen and it's missing Sense and Sensibility. Since it was one of those places that uses old books a decoration I asked if they had put it somewhere else. "Sorry No. Did you see the other set?" Leads me to set of Mark Twain. ?♀️
It's a truth universally acknowledged that there are a lot of new Pride and Prejudice variations in the book world right now. Pride and Prejudice with settings far from Jane Austen's England.
Now I feel the need to read the original. 🤓

Delightful as a good cup of Chai. Window into a world I know nothing about: Canada's Muslim Community. Fun story yet also tackles issues of stereotyping. Particularly loved Ayesha & Clara's friendship. Two very different women, yet they are friends, who look out for one another & are always there for each other. I think Jane Austen would approve. 💖💕
For all my Love of Pride & Prejudice; I must say that Sense & Sensibility has one of the best Literary Heroes - Colonel Brandon. Now when I read this Classic I always see him as the perfection that is Alan Rickman from the movie. Colonel Brandon is a quiet unobtrusive man for the most part. However, when you need a Hero he always comes through. 💙💙💙💙💙
