Some Long Longed-for Birthday Gifts

thank you, hubby dearest!

These are the most beautiful books I have ever come across. Now, do they have Persuasion?

(in case you are not familiar with these books,they are the new Penguin Classics series)

I have these same books! I have the Pride and Prejudice one and wish they were making the other three into these editions as well, but I don't know if they are!

Hi Allie! Next on my list is P&P, but really wish they had Persuasion!Nice to see someone appreciates beautiful books like myself:-)

I'm with you, I wish they had Persuasion, it's my fav Austen. But I do love them all.

Avid Reader: I just finished Persuasion for the Goodreads Jane Austen group discussion, but I really want to just go back and read it again! Can't get enough of Austen.

I have several of these too, and they really are wonderful editions. I have tried, over the years, to acquire my favorite classics in either the 'Everyman's Library', the 'Modern Library', and now the Penguin Classics hardbound editions.

Enjoy, and a belated 'Happy Birthday' to you! Cheers!
