This date in Literary History

On January 28, 1813, Jane Austen's novel Pride and Prejudice was first published in Great Britain.

The Hill Freeman Library and Spruill Learning Center has the Complete Novels of Jane Austen available on the third floor, call number PR4030 1983, but did you know we also have electronic copies of Pride and Prejudice available from both Netlibrary and eBrary. You're just a few clicks away from enjoying one of the most beloved novels in English literature, in a format Miss Austen probably never imagined! Pride and Prejudice is only one of approximately 80,000 e-books practically at your fingertips. You only need to complete a short, one-time registration in order to view them from the privacy of your own computer.

We also have in our collection the VHS version of the incomparable BBC adaptation starring Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy (PR4034 .P72 1995). Highly recommended by this blogger and legions of swooning fans!
