Hi-----I am only at the very beginning of David Shapard's Annotated Pride and Prejudice. Probably because I am into more than one book at the moment. It is very interesting to get the background. I have previously read Pride and Prejudice. You might enjoy reading Karen Joy Fowler's The Jane Austen Book Club which follows the six members of the club month by month as they read and discuss her books. Their discussion ideas are part of the book. Also the book club members are developed in retrospectives about them as well as at their meetings.
