Jane Austen Book Club

That's right...I'm in one. And if it sounds super nerdy...that's because it is! But I don't care because I LOVE it. Discussing books I have read is one of my favorite things to do, and when there's a room full of girls who love Jane (that's right, we are on a first name basis) as much as I do, it's wonderful non-stop chatter about themes, heroines, friendship, betrayal, proposals...and on and on. The book club convened last night to watch Northanger Abbey the movie since we finished and discussed this book a few weeks ago. If you are interested in watching it, the Masterpiece Theater (2008) version is excellent. The BBC (1986) version not so much. I'm not really interested in watching a period film where the main characters bangs are feathered and the the soundtrack includes the electric guitar. And now on to Sense and Sensibility!

i've been carrying Emma around in my bag for the last month -- trying to finish the last few chapters. there are too many men named John Knightley in it. and Emma is a jerk.

i think i just started my own Jane Austen club.
