Jane Austen

This month our selection for book club was Persuasion. Reading the book was very difficult. It was almost like reading a foreign language.

So I would be able to better discuss the book at our meeting I watched the movie. Even watching the movie was difficult. I had to pay attention to every word. It was almost like they were speaking a foreign language. The furniture & the scenery in the movie was wonderful. Jane Austen is very popular and I think it's a following from the movies and not from her books. Next I would like to watch, not read, Sense & Sensibility. This weekend I'll be watching the Super Bowl. Although, it will NOT be like last year, no Giants. I'll be routing for the Cardinals. It would be nice to see a team that has never won the title win. Make sure you vote in my poll. Curious who you want. Have a chicken wing, guacamole & pizza weekend!

I absolutely love Jane Austen movies. May favorite Sense & Senseibility version is the one with Kate Winslet, Emma Thompson, and Hugh Grant. I watch it all the time. I also love the A&E Pride and Prejudice. It is long, but worth it.

I will be making pizza and wings but no guacamole. I really don't care who wins this year, so I am hoping for some GOOD commercials!

I was forced to read Jane Austen in HS. I would never read it voluntarily. The movies are very hard to understand. Keep hitting rewind! If someone chooses a Bronte book for you, run! Too much like a literature course!

I am waiting for the family to tell me which team I am rooting for. I guess I am actually rooting for a certain score, based on my grid square picks! Like 'lilpoppy, I am there for the commercials.
