Favorite books

My father bought me the complete series of Jane Austen books, but I didn't become interested in her until I saw the the BBC film Pride and Prejudice. The first time I saw this epic film I was glued to the couch. I fell in love with Miss Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy. I could not wait to read Pride and Prejudice. I raced down to the local library and checked out a copy. I sat in my house night, and day reading. It didn't matter if the laundry was over flowing, or if the kids wanted more candy. I didn't care. I just wanted to get back to my book. After I finished this book, I felt I needed to have more. That's when my dad and I wandered into a book store, and he bought me the entire series of Jane Austen books. It was one of the best gift he ever given me. I enjoy reading these books often, and just recently I read a new book about The lost memoirs of Jane Austen by author Syrie James. I was surprised how much I enjoyed this book. Right now it's one of my favorites. I hope you will try viewing, or reading a Jane Austen story.
