To Do: Complete Jane Austen

Honestly, when I first read about this in the Sunday Times I was so excited I almost fell out of bed. For the next two months, PSB's Masterpiece Theater is running the "complete Jane Austen."

It starts this week with Persuasion and will include airings of Northanger Abbey, Mansfield Park, Miss Austen Regrets (a new bio pic), Pride and Prejudice (the 4 hour Colin Firth version), Emma and Sense and Sensibility. I'm in heaven!

I just finished "Lost in Austen: Create Your Own Jane Austen Adventure" by Emma Campbell Webster. A HILARIOUS, clever read for fans of Jane.
