Add to that the fact that I've been reading Jane Austen's Town and Country a sort of bio and a biography of Chalotte Bronte. That has lead to lots of summer movie nights with BBC ... Including Nicholas Nickleby (Charles Dickens) several Anthiny Trollope adaptations and an Austen or two while also reading both Persuasion (Austen) and The Tenant of Wildfelll Hall (Anne Bronte)
So yes, I've been living in 19th century England all month ...
The big coincidence is that I had forgotten I'd offered to host and have a tea party for my book club ladies if they agree to reading an Austen novel.
And all we need are apt readers. What a great group and such a lively discussion of Anne Elliot and her exploits at Bath!!
