Now for a reread of one of my favourites books of all time!
"Not handsome enough to tempt me" ?
For all the Austen fans in Litsyland...❤️📚❤️📚😊
*from somewhere on Etsy 🤷🏻♀️
1- Pride & Prejudice
3- Firth- I haven't seen the older versions (bet Olivier was fab tho!) and Macfadyen just didn't work for me
4- Anne Elliott
5- Knightley. Or Brandon. Or Wentworth. #cointoss
6: the Crawford siblings in Mansfield Park
7- Bride & Prejudice- it did a great job of updating the story while keeping recognizable characters. Plus the costumes! The dancing! The locations! It's wonderful.
1. Northanger Abbey
2. 13 - I didn't like it so I didn't read P&P until I was about 25
3. Olivier - Firth doesn't do it for me and I always think Macfadyen is a bit wet (he's perfectly cast in Succession)
4. Elizabeth Bennett
5. Mr Knightley
6. Lady Catherine de Bourgh
7. Toss up between the 90's TV P&P (it kept all the jokes) the 1996 film of Emma (Jeremy Northam as Knightley - see above) and Clueless (Paul Rudd and new jokes)
Currently reading Pride and Prejudice because it's my mother's favorite book. She told me it reflects how she wished she wanted her life to be. I had a thought about where she is now and how would she convey in a book title, she answered "what happens when life lives you"
It appears that I‘ve caught my grandson‘s stomach virus 😢 Especially not good, since I‘m scheduled for surgery tomorrow. Hubby went to church, and I was planning to read, but couldn‘t concentrate. So I put on the movie equivalent of comfort food (probably shouldn‘t have used that word; my stomach just turned over.) Hopefully it will distract me from how rotten I feel and what bad timing I have.

1. We just snagged a place for a week in Paris; also, my Portland Thorns won their home opener 3-0 in the remodeled Providence Park! ⚽️
2. So many but let‘s go with Leslie Feinberg‘s Stone Butch Blues for Pride Month. 🏳️🌈
3. You mean Seattle Storm or Minnesota Lynx? #WNBA
4. Tagged and also I often reread it and read its many spawn.
@Clare_H I like tagging you in this even though I know you‘ll never do it. 😂
Ok I am just a bit late to the party on this one but better late than never, right? I am sure I picked this up at some point in high school but probably wrote it off as an “old fashioned romance” without giving it a chance. Fortunately, I finally did give it another chance and realized it is so much more than that. I‘m slowly getting through my list of Classics that I know I “should” read and this is at the top of the list. #aty2019
My apologies I haven't been posting lately. Life has kept me busy and my reading has slowed this month for some reason. I'm busy working on shop inventory while listening to Kate Beckinsale reading P&P. I had hoped to finish 2 books for next weeks Austen Book Club, but I don't think I will be able to. This is a great version of the audiobook by the way! #janeausten
Hello! I‘m new to the community and just wanted to introduce myself. I was born in China and now reside in Dallas, but I haven‘t had a chance to explore the city as much as I‘d like in the four years I‘ve lived here. I love Jane Austen, wine, history, art, classical music, and collecting vintage copies of publications. (: I don‘t have social media! But it‘s lovely to meet such nice people here already.
Late to the game but thanks for the tag @Dragon ! If anyone would like to play who hasn‘t...please do! 😊
Technically it‘s a flowering tree, but I ♥️ magnolia blooms!
Chocolate, preferably milk
Hope all had a lovely Hearts Day! ♥️♥️♥️
1) I don't read too many romances.
2) 02/15 because I'm single and all the Valentine's candy goes on sale on the 15th 😂
3) My dog Westley maybe...🐕
5) Maybe Westley from The Princess Bride or Mr. Darcy.
Holy Grail of Pride and Prejudice.
1st Edition on display at Chawton House Library. Published on this day - January 28, 1813. Just one of my many treasured memories from visit to Jane Austen's Hampshire. 💙💙💙💙💙

Her name "Charlie", I realise I forgot to mention, is short for Charlotte. We already have our two British Shorthair cats Bingley and Darcy, so we decided to keep the theme going. #dogsoflitsy
The book that taught me best not to judge a book by it's cover. Absolute amazing.
A wonderful way to start 2019. Austen‘s fierce wit and razor sharp commentary pour off the page. When people talk about the Darcy/Lizzie romance they seem to forget that while he changes, Elizabeth does as well. They are improved by each other. That is the point.
“I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look, or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun."
My 8 year old‘s Christmas gifts to me. 💕
Was just talking about this with my friend the other day! 😂 Jane Austen‘s confidence level is goals!
I‘m sure this has been posted but it‘s from tumblr. 😊
So a couple weeks ago I bullied and annoyed my mother into downloading Pride and Prejudice on her kindle so she can enjoy the beauty that is my favorite Jane Austen novel, even though she can't stand Regency novels. I'm feeling accomplished.
(Update: she hated it...)
