Twilight?


Goodness me, is that a new Stephanie Meyer book? No, the cunning folk at HarperCollins have just repackaged Pride and Prejudice so it looks like a Twilight book, hopefully fooling legions of teenage girls with absolutely no taste in literature into reading something decent for a change!


They've given the Bronte sisters the same treatment too. Mind you, anything that gets people reading Austen rather than some veiled Morman dross is all right by me.

  1. I am now imagining Mr. Darcy at a garden party at Pemberley... glittering. Sparklearious!

    This is an unfortunate trend and proves once again that anyone who actually loves books has no place in publishing.
