A tale of Pride & Prejudice

I gathered all the covers in this post on Friday, thinking that today I would share them with you and let you know what were my favourites and what version I ordered. Turns out, we already had TWO copies of Pride and Prejudice - my grandma's from when she was young and one we bought at Target a few weeks ago - so my original plan didn't work out.

BUT I am so glad we already owned a copy because I devoured it this weekend - started & finished Pride and Prejudice in 48 hours. Barely left the couch Sunday afternoon except to put dinner in the oven haha

I am totally converted and I have NO idea why it took me so long to finally read!! I almost wish I'd saved Death comes to Pemberley until after I'd read Pride and Prejudice, but I read them both within 5 days so they sort of mesh in my mind. (ps, I already loved Death comes to Pemberley, but now I know how true PD James kept it to the original I love it even more)

I am a little bummed I don't get to own one of the gorgeous covers above (yet) but if I could, I would order the red one with the 'A' on it (illustrated by Jessica Hische - one of my favourite illustrators). Which cover would you pick??

Tell me - have you read Pride and Prejudice? What made you first pick it up?
And if you haven't, what's stopping you now?
