In just two days . . .

. . . we'll be starting Pride and Prejudice here at Writing & Ruminating. I have gone "shopping" for some new user icons. Do you like this one? I think I do.

If you want to read along, by all means, grab any old copy of P&P you can find. Could be in a "collected works" volume, could be its own book. You could read the graphic novel, which is entertaining, but won't give you the full story. It's cute though, yes?

If you want to read online, you may do so over at Molland's Circulating Library.

Re: MARVEL-ous!
It's pretty well-done, I must say!

Oh, did you like the Graphic Novel? I haaaated it. The cover was adorable but the content inside did not match. :(

It's nowhere near as good as it could have been, that's for sure. I didn't mind the art, although the story-telling was somewhat ill-paced.

I think I didn't even mind the pacing (though I found it jarring) as much as the sneering and weird facial expressions of all the characters, as if they were frozen mid-syllable.

I was so very disappointed in this particular buy. I would have LOVED a P&P comic done right. :)

I may or may not have started P&P last night when I was having trouble sleeping. I always drink tea when I can't sleep, and tea seemed to call for Austen reading ;)

Austen was widely read by (and to) men coming home from the trenches in WWI, because it was found to be extremely calming and to help men who were suffering from PTSD (probably before it had that particular name). The rhythm of the sentences and the fact that there's nothing especially violent going on in her books was found extremely beneficial.

Or, for the short version: Austen is an excellent choice when you need to settle yourself down.

Awesomesauce! I was thinking about doing a re-read, so this is perfect timing! My copy is ready to go...

I prefer the original as well - the text is ever so much better!
