Austentacious: Jane Austen Reading Challenge

I decided to take a “happy break” and I’m reading Pride and Prejudice. I’m getting the Penguin editions because they have the best reading notes. I was getting these cheap books and the notes weren’t as good. When you read classics I feel you owe it to yourself to have a different interpretation. For example, this book talks about trends and debates in feminism in the time it was written. Also, I can read the notes as opposed to them being really really tiny. Sorry, Norton critical editions. It also describes the wealth and what it meant, what neighborhoods meant, and how society was perceived.
