without leaving your house?
And when I say “Pemberley”, the home of Mr. Darcy, I mean Lyme Hall, Cheshire- otherwise known as ‘that place they filmed in the BBC version’. Well, now there is actually a way! If you haven’t grown up in the third world, you probably know about ‘Google Earth’, a fantastic piece of software that allows you to see anywhere in the world via satellite images.
On getting my iPhone one of the first things I did was to check out the App Store. After downloading over twenty different apps I then started searching words of things I was interested in. “Journalism”, “WordPress”, “Social Networking” and then “Pride and Prejudice”. What excited me was that I could now take my favourite Austen novel everywhere with me without having to lug around a whole book and without any cost to myself. There are a few free versions, although there are also plenty of ones you can pay for, and each boasts different features, layouts and themes. In total at the moment there are six free downloads of the novel (not including library apps that allow you to download within the application) and they are very different from each other.
