Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, will be a story that stays with you long after the cover is closed. You’ll have Elizabeth’s banter in your head the next time you’re at work and want to say something witty. You’ll remember Mrs. Bennet the next time you’re watching the news.

In this book, his name is Travis, but for you it might have been Leslie or Maribel or Abdiel or Jacqueline or Sydney. And you’ll be back there in that time where fights were over which kind of Oreo you bought or who had to turn off the light, and love was the only real thing in the world…
