Pride and Prejudice is 201 Years Old!

Pride and Prejudice

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.

Jane Austen's classic novel, Pride and Prejudice, was published 201 years ago today, on January 28, 1813 (I wish I had known that last year). No matter how you feel about this love story between Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy, there's no denying its influence. Since it's inception, Pride and Prejudice has never been out of print, has sold more than 20 million copies, and has spawned countless spin-offs, re-tellings, and sequels, including the charming Bridget Jones's Diary and the cheeky Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
