Oh joy Austenites!  Today is the 200th anniversary of the publishing of "Pride and Prejudice" :D  What a joy this book has brought to my life.  Not to mention the films, tv shows, "sequels" (good/bad), mugs, board games, dances/balls, etc. that have been inspired by this story.  I love to think how bemused Jane would be by the success of her stories, and how much we embrace them.  I could gush and gush and gush about this all day but instead here are some of the deviations I enjoy around the site dedicated to this beloved novel:

If you know of any other amazing works based on Jane Austen's works or the Regency in general please share!

I thought about wearing my Regency costume to work today in celebration but thought that might be a bit much. ;)  This past weekend was the "Jane Austen Evening" so look for a little journal about that soon as well.  In the meantime take advantage of National Hot Tea Month and this auspicious birthday and celebrate both occasions with a nice cuppa and some P&P!

Rejoice Austenites! Pride and Prejudice was published 200 years ago today!!!!
