    Re: Austenland, a great book for all you Mr. Darcy/Colin Firth fans

    When I got a Borders coupon online I went out and bought Austenland this weekend for 25% off. I finished it last night. It was so much fun! I could easily see it as a rom com movie. I was worried about the ending for a little while there but in the end, I was quite happy with it.

    One little, itsy-bitsy, teeny-tiny thing I noticed with the British talk: someone says something about seeing Jane in pants. If a Brit were to say that, he'd mean underwear. I think in the context of the book it was supposed to mean jeans. My husband is from Northern Ireland and we argue about definition of the word "pants." That's why I noticed :P :P :P

    Re: Austenland, a great book for all you Mr. Darcy/Colin Firth fans

    I saw The Jane Austen Book Club on Saturday and I loooooved it. Really loved it! It bugged me that they cast actresses that were far too young for the roles (Amy Brenneman and Maria Bello are supposed to be fifty-ish!), but I got over it after I got into the movie.

    The movie is actually more Austen-esque than the tales in the book! The screenwriter truly wound the plots of all 6 Austen books into the script.

    Emily Blunt as Prudie was breathtaking. She's so beautiful and to watch a grown woman lust after an 18 year old boy (who's hot!) was uncomfortable at first, but I thought she was amazing. And Hugh Dancy as Grigg is yummy. Jimmy Smits was really good too.

    I picked up this book to read on the plane this weekend:

    It's got horrible reviews, but I can't help it--I need another fix!!

    Also, I am going to let my daughter watch Jane Austen Book Club, but not read the book.

    I'm so glad you loved the movie! I can't wait to see it.

    The book looks like a perfect fun read.

    I keep waiting for my chance encounter with Mr. Darcy. So far he hasn't shown up for it. Imagine that.
