Our latest review is of Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen:
When Elizabeth Bennet first meets eligible bachelor Fitzwilliam Darcy, she thinks him arrogant and conceited, while he struggles to remain indifferent to her good looks and lively mind. When she later discovers that Darcy has involved himself in the troubled relationship between his friend Bingley and her beloved sister Jane, she is determined to dislike him more than ever. In the sparkling comedy of manners that follows, Jane Austen shows the folly of judging by first impressions and superbly evokes the friendships, gossip and snobberies of provincial middle-class life.

Belle: Dear Readers: I apologise for Withholding from you the delights of our reviews but Sadly one of our readers had the unmitigated gall to send us Fan Fiction. As you know, Claire and I despise fan fiction. We do not pursue it legally because we believe in freedom of speech, but it is vile and all those who write it are despicable plagiarists scavenging from the works of Real Authors like vultures scavenging a maggot-ridden corpse.
Webmistress Niki: Belle was a little upset, so we took a brief hiatus from reviews.

Hi everyone! It’s Claire! Today I’m going to share with you one of my very favorite things: art from our fans!
Belle and I love getting all kinds of fanmail, of course, but there’s something really special about the pictures our readers send us. It’s really obvious how much our stories are touching people when they go to so much trouble to create beautiful, hand-crafted images like the ones I’m going to show you today. I hope you’ll like them as much as I do! (P.S. Niki says you can click on them to make them bigger!)
