Another celebration in 2013



Thanks to Austenonly {and Twitter}, I've just learned that the first edition of Pride and Prejudice was published in January 1813, and there's going to be a party.   I did say I was longing to read all of the novels again ...

It's high time for me to read Pride and Prejudice again, too!
