I don't read many classics. Barely any. A while back though I took a notion to read Pride & Prejudice for the first time. I'm a big kindle fan but for this book I wanted my first time to be special.
I hunted down and bought a very nice vintage hardback, complete with gilt trim and (faux) leather and settled down to read...then I laid it aside and had an attack of doubt. What if I hated it? EVERYONE else seems to love it and the pressure to get sucked in by it felt huge. I decided to delay reading it until I felt I was in the right mood for it to grab me. Eventually I decided that even if I hated it I'd just say I loved it so that nobody would think I was stupid :D
Now where did that fancy book go? *sigh* Nowhere to be found. It's like the thing had vanished into thin air. Ah well, never mind, my kindle is special too, I suppose.
Nope, two chapters into the kindle edition and I wasn't feeling it. I really needed this one in paper.
So, fast forward a few weeks spent checking charity shops for any copy I could lay my hands on without any success and I take myself online. I'm browsing a few different covers when I spy this edition. The mother lode... Soon as I saw this Pulp the Classics cover I knew that was 'The Special' I had been looking for.
It's just perfect for me. Cover with a vintage re-do and cute tag-line to match. With Colin Firth as the inspiration its made of win. Apparently I judge books by their covers.
The text of the book is the exact classic's text, it's just the cover that is different.Read more ›

I just want to comment on this edition of the book. It's wonderful! I actually saw a picture of this on Instagram and HAD to find out where to buy it (turns out it was hidden in the depths of Amazon).
I'm a Pride and Prejudice collector. I'm pretty sure I have 10 versions now - so when it comes to getting new versions, I'm all about judging the books by their covers. I also love Colin Firth, so the moment I saw this, I knew I had to have it. I love the classic pulp style of the cover and the techniques they used to make it look a little worn. The edges of the pages are a bright red - really eye catching. Other than that, it's a solid little paperback. Something I can see myself reading and reading again - on the beach, on vacation, while it gets a little more broken in each time - and the more worn it becomes the more I'll love it.
If you're looking for a unique copy for your collection and maybe you're not ready to invest in a nice hardcover, I'd say go for this. I believe I got it for about $6 on Amazon.
