Meet the Janeites

Name: Ruth

How did you become a Janeite?  I've always been a history lover for all my life and enjoy reading novels of 18th and 19th centuries to gain an understanding of the mindset of those periods. Also after watching Persuasion starring Amanda Root and Sense and Sensibility with Kate Winslet I then purchased the Barnes and Noble book which contained all 7 novels of Jane Austen. Reading them I wondered why I never got into them way before!

Favorite Jane Austen Novel?  Persuasion

Favorite Character?  answer

Favorite Movie Adaptation?  Marianne

Any Sequels or Adaptations you enjoy?  Sense and Sensibility starring Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet

Anything else you want to share?Recently I just got into seeing for the first time the Colin Firth 1995 Pride and Prejudice mini series and I really enjoyed it!
