A little bland but glad I read it
Those paper flowers became a Pride and Prejudice themed tree for donation!
Mahalo @Eggs for the #WondrousWednesday tag!🤗
1️⃣ I‘d love to visit Pemberley, Lambton & Derbyshire from Pride and Prejudice just because. Also Half-Moon Hollow, Kentucky or Mystic Bayou, Louisiana from either of Molly Harper‘s series to hang out with snarky fun supernaturals.
2️⃣ I‘m grateful for a good talk with a prospective new employer. It‘s not initially the job I want, but a way to get in until that job is ready & leave the crazy.🤞🏼
Per my last post, the P&P glasses were for my sister for her birthday in mid October. For various reasons we couldn‘t get together until Monday, when we went to lunch after I fulfilled my final out-processing task at the office.
She said she has a book of Austen inspired cocktail recipes for which they‘d be perfect! (The tea was for me.)
I recently started dating a man and this quote from Charlotte crept into my mind. Not sure if she has the best advice, but I‘m making my intentions known. Please, send some HEA good vibes this way. It‘s already feeling like I “ran into” my hero 🥰
Yes, I think the romance in my beloved Pride and Prejydice qualifies as a #SlowBurn but I think also a slow burn was my purchasing of this book after seeing @Crinoline_Laphroaig post about it a few weeks ago. I was going to immediately order it online & then I held off until last week when I was close to my local Barnes & Noble & they had it. It was worth the wait—it‘s gorgeous! So far I left all of the letters & goodies inside ⬇️
A recent issue of the New Yorker had 2 Austen-adjacent articles. One on rationality, that used the examples of Lizzie Bennet & Charlotte Lucas: Charlotte exercised rational choice-making by marrying the safe Mr. Collins. Lizzie's initial dismissal of Mr. Darcy was not. Ha! Another article discussed the darker side of Britain's country houses, how many of them were funded by slavery, a fact that Austen touches on. #Pemberlittens @sprainedbrain

Who collects P&P editions here? I know I have seen some posts from someone. I will send this to the collector if it‘s an edition you‘re missing!
It‘s “Austen in August” so I am starting with Pride and Prejudice! I also began running with my puppy on his running harness this morning, too. He did so well!! Now we are both relaxing before dinner.
I am probably one of the few that could not stand this book. It just seemed to go on forever and it was hard to follow. It may have been that I was listening to this book while working so my attention was divided.

Just what I need, another streaming subscription. I‘m not sure I can resist!
332 p. Finally finished, and read it in Italian! So much drama just for getting married! I might be misjudging, I know I should evaluate the context of time in which the book was written, but it feels so outdated and I just could not ignore the pointlessness of the story. Would not read it again, would not recommend it.

Thanks for the tag @LitStephanie ♥️
It‘s been so long since I posted one of these!
1. Tbh the only book club I‘m in is the #pemberlittens and I joined it for the sole purpose of reading P&P. By far my favorite Austen work. No surprise there 😂
2. I‘m a huge vampire fan so anything to do with that genre. There‘s an ongoing series called Crave by Tracy Wolff that I‘d like to read with a book club.
Why yes, I did walk twenty feet ahead of my kids while they talked about Minecraft so I could pretend I was walking the grounds at Pemberly. Can you blame me? #Pemberlittens
When you have a busy mind and thoughts keep creeping in whilst you‘re trying to read - book down and pull out the puzzles! 👍🏼
Thanks for the tag @Eggs !

2.No. I am more of a mood reader
Wanna play? @Crazeedi @Puredragonstar @Jnnlb @books.a.la.brooke @MB1994 @CaffeineAndCandy and any one else who would like to participate.
Great choice for my very first audiobook and very first Austen novel (took me a while to get on those bandwagons)! Lots of talking/walking, gossip and primness, but the action picks up and our heroine, Elizabeth Bennet, eventually gets past much of the sassy classism. I was surprised to see the social transgressions of Lydia Bennet occupy so much of the novel.
Lockdown is making me wish I had a giant English estate to roam around in.
Saw this on Facebook and thought it was fitting considering that I just read Pride and Prejudice for the first time last week! #funny #litsylaughs #janeausten #prideandprejudice #classics #memes #review #reviews
