The anniversary of the publication of Pride and Prejudice has Jane Austen fans around the world celebrating Elizabeth, Darcy, and the entire Bennet clan—well, perhaps not the entire clan. Bookish: You were a librarian and a teacher before you were a writer. As a former librarian, what was your favorite book to recommend?
The Forgotten Sister: Mary Bennet's Pride and Prejudice
When we moved to Denver, I became a librarian at an elementary school. Both great stories and rich with character growth. B: Libraries and ebooks are finding a way to coexist, or trying to. Some libraries now lend ebooks; others are sticking true to paperbacks. As a former librarian, how do you feel about the future of libraries and ebooks?
PM: The demand for ebooks is growing, and most public libraries are responding to this demand as best they can. One of the biggest problems they are having is negotiating an equitable price with middlemen and publishers. Overall, the digital revolution in information, and publishing has brought even more patrons to libraries. Physical books, ebooks, and other electronic media are all part of the modern library. B: Jane Austen is a favorite author to many, but what drew you personally to Pride and Prejudice when you first read it?
What draws you back now? Darcy that drew me in. With every reading, I find something new to ponder or admire.

B: You focus on Mary—is she the sister you relate the most to or merely the one who sparked inspiration in you? PM: I relate to Mary in fundamental ways that I think apply to all women. I also saw her as a character with the potential to change, which is an important element in character development.
