Read in June, 2008

Read this for OT Book Club. I had seen the movie, so it was almost difficult to read because I continually tried to picture the movie characters, which was both a distraction and a huge annoyance. Grrr.... This book would have been just OK and mildlyhad I not seen the movie first. I vow to NEVER do that again! It was a total "beach read" which is fine but not a great book club book. What's there to discuss??? A bunch of women and one guy read Jane Austin over a year and their lives change a little. Big deal. I would have much rather read an actual Jane Austen. The only funny thought I had after reading this book is that it might be fun to invite ONE man to join our book club--as a source of amusement!
