BOOK REVIEW: Celebrating Pride and Prejudice by Susannah Fullerton

A review copy of Celebrating Pride and Prejudice: 200 Years of Jane Austen’s Masterpiece by Susannah Fullerton (Jane Austen Society of Australia president) turned up at my local post office in early December, having been sent from the PR Department of Quayside Publishing Group.

The top ten P&P Borders Covers

As many of you know, I am picky when it comes to books and their covers.  If a book is ugly, I will generally refuse to buy it.  I’ve previously presented my “Top Ten Pride and Prejudice book covers” as well as the “Top Ten Foreign Pride and Prejudice Book Covers” however I was looking through the Borders website the other day, and I found some new ones (I almost squealed the house down).  And yes, I went through all 874 results for this!  I have endeavoured not to include eBooks when it is clear (but sometimes they are listed wrongly) and I have not included books from the previous lists, at least not to my knowledge.

Number 10:
Japanese Pride and Prejudice

I have a sneaking suspicion that I have seen this cover somewhere before, and I can see a whisper of the English at the bottom of the image, and hence it only makes 10th on my list.  The language looks gorgeous though.
