  1. My favorite is the first one I read — Pride and Prejudice. Not only is it an incredible story with wonderful characters and witty dialogue, it opened the world of Austen to me. Her writing has brought me such joy.

    I’m currently in the middle of a Jane-a-thon (stalled out in Emma), but so far my favorite Austen is still Pride and Prejudice. I’ve always related to Elizabeth, and I love the whole jumping-to-conclusions and missteps taken by the characters, it’s like a dance. Their mother makes a great comic relief in the story, too. I’ve linked this contest on my Giveaways and Contests page.

  3. I completely agree with Ruth! P&P will always be my favorite

  4. My favorite it Pride and Prejudice because, as Ruth said, it opened the world of Austen to me. I hesitated on reading it for the longest time and I’m so glad I did. The characters are phenomenal, and the plot is intriguing. The book really pulled me in.

  7. Hi!
    My favorite Jane Austen novel is, for sentimental reasons, Mansfield Park. It was my first Jane Austen when I was a young teen, and it completely mesmerized me! Since then, I read a few other Jane Austen and seen almost any movie inspired by the books, and I still haven’t read those who seem to be the most popular, Emma and Pride & Prejudice. But I know Mansfield Park will always have a special place in my heart!

    I also made an entry on my blog about the giveaway :)

  8. While I’m hesitant to admit this, the only Jane Austen novel I’ve actually read cover to cover is Pride & Prejudice — so I have to say that’s my favorite, though I know and love many of the other storylines! :) I know, I’m terrible… but I do love Austen, despite this admission! :) And I love Austen-based fiction. It’s sort of an obsession.

    This book looks great! Thanks for the chance!

  9. My favorite Austen book is either Pride and Prejudice or Northanger Abbey. I am still holding out for the day I meet my Mr. Darcy. I also love how Austen adds the gothic lit. element into Northanger Abbey.

    I have added a link to your giveway on my blog.

  11. I’d have to go with Pride and Prejudice because I love the characters and the way the plot flows.

  12. My fave Jane Austen novel is Pride and Prejudice. I’ve always been fascinated with British society in the 1800s and a woman’s role in it. I just love the dynamic between Elizabeth and Darcy.

  13. My fave Austen novel is Sense & Sensibility, closely followed by Pride & Prejudice. I love Austen less for her romantic storylines (although they’re good too), and more for her cynical social commentary, and I was up all night laughing the first time I read Sense & Sensibility.

    Also, I’m a tad confused about where we’re supposed to be posting ongoing Dewey Decimal reviews, but I just wrote one for my 200-century book, Gleanings from Old Shaker Journals. It’s up over here.

  14. My favourite is Pride and Prejudice. I don’t know exactly why, but I think it might have something to do with Mr. Darcy!

  16. Tough choice! I’m going to have to go with the classic Pride & Prejudice like many others have said. It was the first Jane Austen book I read!!

  17. My vote is Pride and Prejudice. We were made to read that book for English Lit and it was surprisingly less painful than I thought it would be. Enjoyable even!

  18. Emma, the character reminds me of me as a teenager (I know, I’m so proud), and I like how she gets both her comeuppance and a happy ending.

  19. My favorite Jane Austen novel is Northanger Abbey because I am a sucker for Gothic novels and Austen’s parody is one of the best. This was my first foreway into Austen-land, but it won’t be my last. P&P will be coming up sometime this year. I have to teach my daughter the world of Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy.
