If My Facebook Could Only Tell the Greatest Love Story in Literature

But it doesn't. However, the folks at Much-Ado.Net have created the Austenbook which does. The full text of Pride and Prejudice is told in facebook updates with hilariously clever results:

Lydia Bennet and Kitty Bennet have joined the group 1,000,000 Strong Against the Officers Leaving Meryton!
Lydia Bennet is going to Brighton with Colonel & Mrs. Forster!!!!1!


As funny as it is it reminds me of how normal it is to post every intimate detail of your life on facebook in a means of typed moral support. Ah the modern age, no wonder romance is dead!

I friggin' saved the whole thing to my hard drive in case it would ever go offline. My stepdaughter and I can't stop giggling over it.

It's official, I'm an internet moron. How the heck does one get to read this? I've been to the website but had no luck. Help!
