Mother's Day Gift

I am a huge Jane Austen fan, Pride and Prejudice being my favorite of her books. In fact, it is one of my favorites of all times. It is a running joke at my book club to not bring up Jane Austen because inevitably I will make some comparison from the current selection to one of the Austen novels. Most of the club actually roll their eyes the minute I say "Jane".

In any case, my dear darling husband supports my love of all things Austen by frequently giving me Austen-ian gifts like shirts with favorite phrases, books that continue the saga of Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy (if you do not know who they are you should be ashamed of yourself.), and most recently a variation on Pride and Prejudice for Mother's Day.

That's right, you read correctly. My endearing husband gave me Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance-Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem. The first line of the book is: It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains." Awesome. I can't wait.

I love you, Honey. You have made me a mother and I am ever grateful.

Ha! That Erik! It does make me a bit sad however that someone would do that to my beloved book! :)

I've got a thing for zombies...well, actually... anything spooky, so I'd actually picked this book up a couple of times and contemplated purchasing it. I wondered if it would be as funny, not having read the Jane Austen. I suspect I should read her stuff first. Let me know if it's fun! :)
