Pride & Prejudice Celebrates 200 Years

Pride and Prejudice“I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! — When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.”

This month marks the 200th anniversary of the year Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice was first published.    We’ve seen an abundance of re-imaginings  of this classic, from film adaptations, including the Bridget Jone’s adored Collin Firth edition and Keria Knightly’s Academy Award nominated version, to updates with horror-filled twists, and renditions with mysteries.  What’s your favorite spin on Pride & Prejudice?  Or do you prefer the original?
