Pride & Prejudice Enriched, a question

Last year Penguin released an enriched or enhanced ebook edition of Pride & Prejudice. I'm hoping Harry, who I know will know which one I'm talking about, or someone else can confirm for me that this is the correct version...

TIA!

Right, and I think it's the one everyone was talking about way back when. I guess it's cheap enough not to be a big deal if it's not.

True.

Then there is this one... "Complete Illustrated" for only $.99.

http://www.amazon.com/Pride-Prejudic...5598798&sr=1-3

I guess that's when the 16 grey scale on the K2 comes in handy.

Yes, it's the same one. When I clicked on the link, it told me I'd already purchased it, and I was involved with the discussion on this site last year.

Bought it from Fictionwise, alas not at that price (but with a rebate !).
I read this book half a dozen time, at least (my first personal book in english, recommended and brought from England by my english teacher at school, when I was 17 ! Not an easy one, by the way... ), and I saw the BBC series nearly as much !
But I need now to read this version, I'm sure I'll learn a lot of things !
This is one of the books that are to stay all the time on my Cybook, when I delete the already read ones.
