Be still my beating heart!

I just finished watching the movie "Becoming Jane" on DVD. I cried my eyes out! Such a lovely and affecting movie! I doubt that it is very true, but I loved it all the same.
Anne Hathaway is simply gorgeous! James McAvoy is so handsome! He is quickly becoming one of my favorite actors. Did you see him in Atonement?
Thanks to Lorie who suggested this movie! She is on a roll, she was the person who suggested "Across the Universe" too and what a movie that was!
I know I have lots of pictures of the movies on this entry; but I can't help it. It was so gorgeous!
I have a Penguin Lives biography of Jane Austen by Carol Shields. I will have to read that. Also, I may need to read some of Jane's novels....I have read Pride and Prejudice, Persuasion, and Sense and Sensibility. All very good...and may I also suggest that you see the movie version of Persuasion...Wow! That was really great! I got this movie from the library...I am really loving that perk of citizenship! Look for Persuasion at your library, okay??

I went into my Jane Austen phase when I was watching the PBS series of all her novels -- and then re-read some, too. I didn't get this one, though! I'll have to check it out! She's a favorite.

I'm glad you got your fabulous new television -- you're going to love it!

Trying to check up on blogs during my day at a computer here (while still vacationing!) I'll be a more regular visitor later. Meanwhile, I wanted to tell you I read (quickly -- in about a day and a half!) the "Friday Night Knitting Club." Really enjoyed it -- although the end made me sad! Thanks for your recommendation! I'm not sure I would have found it otherwise!

Later!

I just love Anne Hathaway. I was nervous about this movie, though, because I don't generally like biopics. Now I'll have to check it out.
