Happy Birthday ‘Pride and Prejudice’

December 28, 2012 at 10:26 AM (Jane Austen in the News)

Greetings and Salutations to you all. I do hope you had a lovely Christmas and that 2013 starts off jolly well for you.

I just spotted a little tweet this morning, the contents of which I thought I would share with you. 2013 is going to be an important year for Janeites as it marks the 200th Anniversary of the publication of Pride and Prejudice, which means we have a jolly good excuse to have little parties, celebrations and, maybe, head on over to England to celebrate in the country of our favourite author’s birth!

This little link here will give you an idea of some of the exciting things going on in the Mother Country to mark the 200th Anniversary of the birth of Mr Darcy.

I am hoping I’ll get my blasted thesis finished so I can get over there in June and start celebrating myself.

In the mean time, happy holidays and happy reading!
