RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS GIVEAWAY HOP - LET'S CELEBRATE PRIDE & PREJUDICE




Published 200 years ago in 1813, Jane Austen's most popular novel, Pride and Prejudiceturns 200 years old today but has never been fresher and more lovedPride and Prejudice is in many ways a record book. For instance, it  has never been out of print. It remains one of the best-read novels in the English language, with more than 20 million copies sold.
It's also the most filmed of the Austen novels, with 10 major films and TV miniseries, including the classic 1940 adaptation starring Laurence Olivier and Greer Garson with a script cowritten by no less a literary light than Aldous Huxley. Of course, for many of us Elizabeth has Jennifer Ehle's sweet smile and Mr Darcy Colin Firth dreamy stare.

So I've chosen a P&P - related gift to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Lizzy and Darcy and take part in the Random Acts of Kindness Giveaway Hop hosted at Read for the Future and I Am a Reader Not a Writer.
