You must buy THESE editions of the novels. I know that there are many free Austen Ebooks out there but you MUST purchase the editions that I’ve listed below in order to keep up in class. I require you to purchase the specific books listed below because I will be drawing heavily from the criticism published in these editions ; if you do not have these books, you will have to acquire the excerpted essays in some other, invariably more difficult, way.

Norton has just released new covers for all of the Austen novels (with the exception of  Mansfield Park) but only Pride and Prejudice has been actually re-edited . Jane Austen’s Manuscript Works (Broadview ePub), Longbourn, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Graphic Novel, and Pride are available as eBooks.

All of the books will be available at the bookstore, although you may find it less expensive to buy some of your books used over the internet. I often order from abebooks.com, and recommend it highly. For example, you can get a copy of Longbourn for about $4 and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Graphic Novel for $4. You must, however, make sure that you get the most recent edition so double check those ISBN numbers.
