200 Years of Darcy

On this very day 200 years ago, my most favorite book, filled with my favorite places and characters, was published.

A few suggestions for how you can celebrate:
+ Check out this lovely, brief comic version. "Refusal for the ages" indeed.
+ Watch the Lizzie Bennet Diaries if you aren't already. (Love it!)
+ Why we named Elizabeth
+ In addition to the many film adaptions, I recommend Lost in Austen and Bridget Jones for a slightly more modern spin. 

Cheers to 200 years of Lizzie, Darcy, obstinate headstrong girls, blue coats, officers, 10,000 pounds a year, turns about the room, entailments and Mrs. Bennet's poor nerves.
