Booking Through Thursday - Coupling

Got this idea from Literary Feline during her recent contest:
"Name a favorite literary couple and tell me why they are a favorite. If you cannot choose just one, that is okay too. Name as many as you like–sometimes narrowing down a list can be extremely difficult and painful. Or maybe that’s just me."

Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy.


  1. Good answer, even though I have a different one!

    Tell me, how can you do this earlier?

  2. That's my top couple too! Probably is for many of us.

  3. Yeah, but you don't say WHY. Inquiring minds want to know!

  4. It seems that bleary-eyed, no-coffee Karen did not read through the question thoroughly. Why? Well, Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy are iconic. _Pride and Prejudice_ is a book that can stand up to multiple rereadings. It's nice that things work out after the two fumble through their meeting and getting to know each other.

  5. They're on my list too!

    And about half of everyone who responded to this question. The quintessential couple :)


  6. I hate to be controversial, but I've never liked Darcy! I'm Team Emma & Knightley :)
