Ah! I got the Sense and Sensibility as a gift and absolutely adored it. I'll have to get this one too, for sure. Thanks!

I have the P&P and Sense and Sensibility. That picture of Catherine and Mr Tilney is so cute! I exclaimed to my husband and he checked to see if they had pre-order for the complete book..... Then he said "pre-order done!" Am I lucky or what? So, yeah, thanks for posting:)

You don't mention that she also did Emma this summer...which I collected while it was serialized, and received the hardcover for my birthday...
