It's uncanny how similar the dating culture today is to the world of Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice. It has become one of my favorite novels. I can't help but laugh at Elizabeth's snarky and witty comments or Mrs. Bennet's remarks about her nerves. I love that reading allows you to form ideas of what the author's world entails. It would be a dream come true to one day run off to the land that inspired the timeless classic. For now, I live vicariously through the 2005 and 1995 film versions of the book.

With every BBC booklist book I read, I'll be piecing together collages of what I envision the world of that book to look like.
