[quote=""EC2""]Yes, that's what I thought Nona. Actually I'd probably be more like to read this than ye actual Jane Austen! :eek: :cool: [/quote]


Count me in on that! I read P&P and wish I hadn't. But at least with a comic there is art! :)

I tried P&P about a year and a half ago, but just couldn't stay interested enough to finish. I suspect I'm just not a fan of Miss Austen.

Maybe after the P&P comic for the tweens and teens, a graphic artist could conjure up one of those Big Little type books for the younger kids. Do any of you other born-in-the-50's or 60's remember those tiny but thick books with a color picture on every right page? I still have about a dozen of them buried in a closet somewhere.

I have a box full packed away for safe keeping, they were my mothers but I loved to look at them when I was growing up.
