Canterbury Classics published in 2012 by Baker & Taylor Publishing Group

I love this book with the soft leather like cover and quotes.

The quotes include some of my favorite like….

“everyday confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters”

“For what do we live, bit to make sport for our neighbors”

and “Happiness in marriage is entirely a matter of chance”

Insight Edition published in 2007

Pretty cover but it does look like a historical romance.

The annotations are worth buying this edition because they are interesting themselves. It includes “trivia, notes and inspiration to amplify this beloved classic.”

This Pride and Prejudice edition looks more like Jane Eyre then Pride and Prejudice if you ask me. Published by Penguin Books in 2010. Abridged by Linda Jennings. This edition seems geared towards teens though I dont love the cover.

This is a really interesting edition from Pulp the Classics because of the bizarre cover. I laugh every time I see the tagline “Lock up your daughters… Darcy is in town.” I love this edition because it is so out of the ordinary and because Mr. Darcy is smoking on the cover. Pulp the Classic edition which is part of Oldcastle Books,. LTD and published in 2013
