  2. I love these pairings. I've been trying to read more nonfiction but I always seem to mostly confine myself to biographies. I forget there are so many other interesting possibilities out there. That Darcy book really appeals to me.

  3. I'm a person who enjoys reading both fiction and nonfiction about the same topic. The two Mr. Darcy books sound especially intriguing.

  18. Nice pairings! I particularly liked the Kennedy edition. I agree--my favorite of the prompts so far, and I sort of do this often any way on my blog.

    Enjoy the rest of Nonfiction November.
