Savidge Reads Does Pride & Prejudice…

Fear not, the world has not gone completely mad, my admitted love of Jane Austen’s ‘Persuasion’ has not meant I have suddenly already polished off ‘Pride and Prejudice’, not yet anyway. You may remember that when Michelle told you over the weekend ‘Why I Love Jane Austen & So Should Everyone Else’ (if you haven’t read it then please do, it’s a treat) she mentioned that we had been to Lyme Park in May last year, to try and get the Austen bug going in me, and had in fact made a video homage to the BBC’s ‘Pride and Prejudice’ there. Well after some editing, thank you AJ, here it is. You have been warned…

Ha, I thought I would share it as I am so smitten with Austen at the moment and before things start getting very spooky on Savidge Reads for the rest of the week. I hope you all enjoyed it?

I’m Off To Pemberley…

…No really! After bringing you the joys of Daphne yesterday and the possible re-visit or first visit to Manderley (don’t forget you can win five Daphne books for ‘Discovering Daphne’ here) with ‘Rebecca’, I am now off to see the famous grounds of Pemberley where Lizzie and Fitz, that’s Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy to you please, re-meet.

One of my lovely friends Michelle has come to visit me between my hospital visits and cheer my spirits and so we are off to Lyme Park for the day to find the settings of, and hopefully actually re-enact (I am taking my video camera, oh yes), this famous scene from the 1995 classic adaptation of Jane Austen’s ‘Pride and Prejudice’ with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle, need I say anymore? In fact no, let us just cut to that famous scene…


I will report back to you all in due course.
