So, I'm kind of crazy. My readers already know this, but the rest of the world doesn't. Or I guess they don't know it yet. I love all the great Jane Austen books, and I recently read Persuasion via Kindle. It was a really good book, but sometimes I get lost in the characters, or whose who, or why this person matters to the story. But I did finish in one day, and I'm starting to search for Austen-type movies to watch. I started watching Downton Abbey from PBS, and I watched every episode from season one in a matter of days. Mind you that's a total of seven hours. (Watched Via Netflix) Then I proceeded to my favorite YouTube to see if there were any decent fan videos, which tend to be my favorite. I was also directed by my wise sister Jentry to pbs.com where I saw the preview of season two, and I CANNOT WAIT. It premiers the 8th of January, and my heart will be all a flutter once more. Here are some of my favorite video's I come back to again and again.
(Other honorable mentions go to these films/miniseries: North and South, Bleak House, Ang Lee's Sense and Sensibility, Jane Campion's Bright Star, the two newer versions of Jane Eyre..so on and so forth.) If I have missed any you enjoy, please leave them in the comment section.

So hopefully this will bring you some joy after the happiest day of the year. Enjoy!
