  1. So excited for this month’s episodes. 🙂 After reading ALL the Austen as a teenager, it had been a decade since I’d done any re-reading. On the spur of the moment, I listened to the Elizabeth Klett version of Pride and Prejudice last month, so the timing of this series is completely delightful.
