Jane Austen update

Remember my post where I actually admitted to having never seen a movie nor read a book written by Jane Austen?

Well, Elora and I stayed up late and watched Pride and Prejudice the other night. It's the version with Keira Knightly (that was the only version available from where I rented it). I loved it! In all sincerity, I was asking myself what had taken me so long to get caught up in the Jane Austen Fever that a lot people have. Now I get it.

I loved Mr. Darcy - reminds me of my main man!

My plans now are to watch the other versions of P & P before I start into Sense and Sensibility. Thanks for all of your excellent suggestions.

Here are my other plans....

I have watched PP a few times. I love what her father says to her. the whole thing about marriage. I get weepy with him.

Ok, I might be the only one on the planet to not have read or watched any of those stories.

I just noticed you're in Draper. My sister used to live there. Michelle A. she-called-me.blogspot

Loved the movies, have never read the books. I am so happy that I can now have something excited over to read. I am just not convinced yet on all the twilight talk.
