Books by their Covers

Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice has been one of my favourite novels for as long as I can remember. When I first read the text during my childhood, I struggled with the outdated language. I remember getting frustated and re-reading the text until I understood it. I loved it. Mum and I would watch the BBC adaptation constantly, and going to see the Keira Knightley version was our first 'Mummy/Daughter Dates'. In short, I have a lot of memories wrapped up in Austen's classic tale. In my lifetime I must have possessed three or four copies of Pride & Prejudice. As I said, I read it frquently so I tired the copies out quickly. Plus I have a habit of losing books, which is weird, as they should either be on the bookshelf or on my bedside table. Anyway, a few months ago I realised the one remaining copy I had was raggedy and torn. We've all heard the saying 'don't judge a book by its cover', but I felt my favoutite text deserved better. So when I saw this beautiful edition in Waterstones, I knew I had to have it. I love the rich blue with the gold embossing; and the simple design of the hardback. It sits proudly upon my shelf, and I can't help but smile when I look at it.

You can purchase this edition of the text from Waterstone's stores.
