I have been on a Jane Austen kick lately. Paul and I seem to watch Pride and Prejudice about once a month, so I finally re-read it for the first time in years. That inspired me to read Persuasion, and then watch the new BBC version, thanks to my friend Kristen. I've watched it three times since borrowing it. She also had Sense and Sensibility. I think I even like it more than the Emma Thompson version.
Also, if I've never told you of North and South and Wives and Daughters, you should see them too. They are based on books by Elizabeth Gaskell. Absolutely love them.
