Countdown to 2012: The Five Jane Austen Related Books I Most Enjoyed Reading in 2011. #1 - Persuasion, an Annotated Edition

I'll say it right up front, my favorite book related to Jane Austen in 2011 was Persuasion, An Annotated Edition, edited by Robert Morrison. Designed along the same lines as last year's superb Pride and Prejudice, an Annotated Edition, edited by Patricia Meyer Spacks. Robert Morrison not only explains some of the more esoteric details of Persuasion, but also includes beautiful images that explain the era more clearly for the reader. This book is a coffee table edition of an annotation, although I would not recommend leaving it out unattended. A zealous Janeite guest might just squirrel it away unnoticed!

Watch for my four other choices in the next 3 days. What are some of yours?

I got this for Christmas from my Jane-Austen-Enabler-Boyfriend...our JASNA chapter is discussing it at the end of April and I was going to wait until it got closer to read it...but I'm not sure I can hold out after this. :-)

Just wanted you to know that, after seeing this here, I went and ordered it as a psot Christmas present. Am more than halfway through and don't want it to end. I LOVE it! Thanks so much for the recommendation!
