Georgette Heyer- so excited one of her books becoming a new movie

The Grand Sophy. Can’t wait.

Pride and Prejudice Musical

So great. Will watch again and again. My favorite part is the little additions of side remarks and backhanded humor we all say to ourselves as a reader when we are reading the book. Well written and well done.

A good day to read…

Stay inside… read a book that has been jumping on the shelf begging to be turned.

Jane Austen quotes what all of us females are thinking…if in their place in their time

“I hate to hear you talk about all women as if they were fine ladies instead of rational creatures. None of us want to be in calm waters all our lives.”  #JaneAusten in Persuasion #classicromancebookquotes

Tell it, girl. Ode to the woman who knows “she can handle it”.

Washing Your Hands by yourself or with your future cherished one! Thomas Hardy set the scene best.

“It being the first time in his life that he had touched female fingers under water, Dick duly registered the sensation as rather a nice one.” #ThomasHardy Only Hardy can make washing your hands in a sink sound intimate. Love it! #classicromancebookquotes
