Our month long Jane Austen Poll results are in:

Which is your favorite movie version of Pride and Prejudice?

2% - Other
3% - 1940 with Greer Garson and Laurence Olivier
8% - 2005 with Keira Knightly and Matthew Macfadyen
27% - 1995 with Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth

If you could ask Jane any one question, what would you ask her?

It looks like a lot of us are on the same page because only two questions were asked (worded in a number of different ways).
  • We want why Cassandra destroyed Jane's letters and how Jane feels about the act.
  • We also want to know why she didn't marry Harris Bigg-Wither.

If I could be a member of any family I would want to be a...

Darcy, Bennett or a Bingley. 
They were the overwhelming choices! No one wants to be a de Bourgh?
