I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book!
On January 28, 1813, Jane Austen’s second novel Pride and Prejudice was published. The beloved classic follows Elizabeth Bennett on a comic, sharply observed, and romantic journey of manners, morality, and marriage amid the English landed gentry. An enduring favorite since publication, the novel has been adapted numerous times for film and television and spawned hundreds of spin-off books.
