Pride & Prejudice Character Quiz!

I've been so wrapped up in reading Pride and Prejudice recently that I've began to wonder which of the girls I am most like.
I found several P&P character quizzes online and after taking about 10 of them I found one I liked best.
 If you would like to take the quiz yourself to see who you are most like then click HERE.
It's fun and please remember to leave a comment on the blog to tell me which character you ended up with!
Have Fun.

Pride & Prejudice, which edition will you choose?

Here are just 6 editions that I found in one section of Barnes & Noble.
(I found at least 2 others in other sections of the store.)
I can see how someone would get confused as to which edition one to purchase so let's chat about shall we?

There are dozens and dozens of different Pride and Prejudice editions out there to choose from so how do you know which one is best for you?
Below are two of the editions I've personally purchased and been very happy with.

"The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" {by Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Barrows} Book Review

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

Author: Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Barrows

# of Pages: 274

Year Published: 2008

Publisher: The Dial Press

Genre: Historical Fiction

“ I wonder how the book got to Guernsey? Perhaps there is some sort of secret homing instinct in books that brings them to their perfect readers.” January 1946: London is emerging from the shadow of the Second World War, and writer Juliet Ashton is looking for her next book subject. Who could imagine that she would find it in a letter from a man she’s never met, a native of the island of Guernsey, who has come across her name written inside a book by Charles Lamb….

As Juliet and her new correspondent exchange letters, Juliet is drawn into the world of this man and his friends—and what a wonderfully eccentric world it is. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society—born as a spur-of-the-moment alibi when its members were discovered breaking curfew by the Germans occupying their island—boasts a charming, funny, deeply human cast of characters, from pig farmers to phrenologists, literature lovers all.

Juliet begins a remarkable correspondence with the society’s members, learning about their island, their taste in books, and the impact the recent German occupation has had on their lives. Captivated by their stories, she sets sail for Guernsey, and what she finds will change her forever.

Our Star Rating...

...any takers?
