The 200th Anniversary of Jane Austen's Most Famous Novel
Wow! This coming Monday, January 28th, is the 200th Anniversary of Jane Austen's Pride & Prjudice! It was published on January 28th, 1813!
Anyway, over at Elegance of Fashion (a friend's friend's blog), Miss Elizabeth has put up an excellent post with lots of agreeable activities and fun stuff to do.

Also, at The P&P95 Forever Club, Miss Dashwood has put up a (I daresay, very agreeable) Congratulations contest here:
The contest goes like this: you are any character from Pride & Prejudice, and you are writing a letter of congratulations to Jane Austen on the celebration of thr 200th anniversary of P&P.
