Happy Birthday, Pride and Prejudice!

Pride and Prejudice was published on this day in 1813:

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.”–Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

I Was in the Middle Before I Knew That I Had Begun

I’d like to wish my husband a very happy fourth wedding anniversary!

“I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun.”-Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
