#200PnPCovers @CrowCAH @mabell In #Pride & #Prejudice, Mrs.Bennet is desperate to receive #proposals from #rich men for all the Bennet #siblings, so much so that she risks Jane‘s health by making her go to #tea at Netherfield Park in the rain, hoping her #sickness will catch her a husband. Lydia and Kitty hope to catch the attention of the #soldiers stationed in Meryton, so they often #travel on #walks to meet them. (I think I got each prompt in!)

All the #parents (or at least Mrs. Bennet) in #Pride & #Prejudice want is for their daughters to receive #proposals from #rich men.

#200PnPCovers #Proposals

Day 24. Awkward proposals! Like the one from Mr. Collins. He doesn‘t practice his flattering speeches either lol

mabell This is just the best. This is an awkward proposal I can enjoy because you just can‘t feel bad for Mr. Collins 😆 3mo
CrowCAH @mabell it is difficult to feel bad for him. Especially after he so easily switched from Jane to Elizabeth. 3mo

Day 24: #Proposals

In which Jane Austen herself received a proposal and could have been Mrs. Jane Bigg-Wither (😳) … if she hadn‘t changed her mind overnight and retracted her acceptance.

Leftcoastzen Bold! 3mo
CrowCAH I agree @Leftcoastzen bold indeed. But I like her brazenness to retract her acceptance and be true to her feelings. 3mo
mabell Jane wrote about such strong women characters - autobiographical! And thank goodness she remained Austen! Bigg-Wither just doesn‘t have the same ring to it 😄 3mo

Another one I posted about years ago, still have yet to read, but gives all things advice from Jane Austen. Whether you desire marriage #proposals , the secret to life‘s happiness, or just want to avoid the Wickhams in life, this book may be for you! #200PnPCovers

CrowCAH Packed full of wit and wisdom! 3mo
mabell Oh this sounds fun! 3mo

"Come, I will have thee; but by this light, I take thee for pity." Not too bad as far as #proposals go? ??

#150PnPCoverParty While nothing beats Darcy‘s #proposals IMHO, (😛) one of the most satisfying I‘ve recently read is in Agnes Grey. The surf crashing against the bluffs, alone at sunset, a perfect match, what‘s not to like? I also love this cover I came across online and need to track it down now! @CrowCAH @LeahBergen

rockpools That cover's wonderful! Wonder why I've never read this. 4y
