Pride and Prejudice

Something Angela really likes are old books. I wish I could show Angela a large library full of books like the Beast shows Belle in Beauty and the Beast. Something Angela has shared with me as I have gotten to know her world is also the world of Jane Austen. We watch the movie Sense and Sensibility now as our "late night I don't know what to watch" movie. Because of this, we love sneaking in a Jane Austen quote or two during the day. For example, I will ask Angela what she thinks of someone and she'll say,  "I do not attempt to deny that I think very highly of him, that I... greatly esteem him... I like him" and I will reply, " 'Esteem him?' 'Like him?' Use those insipid words again and I shall leave the room this instant!" :P

We stared reading books to one another as I could see her love of books and I secretly started my search for a quality vintage book, I knew I wasn't a prince and couldn't give her a large library full of books but I could give her at least one nice one. In my searching, I finally found this copy of Pride and Prejudice.

Bound in genuine leather and accented with 22kt gold. A Collector Edition that is as magnificent to see as it is to read. I was so excited to present this book to her. I decided also it would be nice for tonight's reading if I were to make her some African amber herbal tea.

 I sat her down and presented the book to her. She loved it!

 We sat and enjoyed the view and the tea.

And I read to my beautiful wife and we had a really wonderful evening.
