Happy birthday, Pride & Prejudice!
I first discovered Pride & Prejudice on a high school summer reading list and have revisited it repeatedly. I've read the other extant Austen novels, of course, but P&P remains my favorite, with Emma in second place. I've read several of the take-offs (the novels about other characters, about Elizabeth & Darcy's children, etc.) and while I don't consider myself a full-fledged "Janehead" or "Janeite", I have been enjoying the articles about Jane & her works. Here's a good one: http://www.thesmartset.com/article/article12211202.aspx
