Most of my #PnPCovers books are second hand, found at used book stores and rummage sales. Each one is special.

My happy hour is the hours I get to read!

Found this mismatched set of Folio Society Jane Austen in a junk store. I told Shopkeeper that I collected Jane Austen and it's missing Sense and Sensibility. Since it was one of those places that uses old books a decoration I asked if they had put it somewhere else. "Sorry No. Did you see the other set?" Leads me to set of Mark Twain. ?‍♀️

Crinoline_Laphroaig "That's not Austen." I say."Oh but it's so pretty." She says. She never could grasp that actually wanted to READ books not decorate. 1d
Eyelit Wow. That kinda hurts my ❤️ and 🧠 6h

This novel is a retelling of Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice. It's set in Brooklyn with all characters of color. It's fresh, funny & engaging - a fun read!

Emma | Jane Austen

Pickpick

Before she began writing Emma, Austen wrote to a friend “I am going to take a heroine whom no one but myself will much like”. She wasn't so much unlikeable as simply a flawed character (the horror!). And the book isn't so much “about“ Emma herself: it's a slow-burn exploration of the lives of genteel women, with marriage, gender, and social politics all delightfully satirised. Full review here: http://keepingupwiththepenguins.com/emma-jane-austen/
