Hi everybody, I missed this post some time during a time of not coping. I love all things Regency - have you all come across things like the Regency Reader and the Beau Monde page on Facebook? I live in Wales but used to live near Salisbury and one of my first visits after retiring a couple of years ago was to Jane's house at Chawton. I've been reading her books since my teens, also quite a long time ago,

Think not. Do.

If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always got.

Hello from Michigan. Soggy Michigan at the moment-its rained all morning. Is anybody out there because from what I can tell no one has commented since 2010. I'm new to the site and just learning my way around. Love P and P. Favorite version would have to be the Keira Knightley. Although, there is something to be said about the BBC version with Colin. Lovely.

I'm from Indianapolis, Indiana. I guess you could call me a lover of all things British. Love BBC dramas, mysteries like "Hetty Wainthropp Investigates", Judi Dench in "As Time Goes By" and many more. Loved "Cranford" and "Lark Rise to Candleford."

I also love to study British history, esp. Regency, Victorian, and Edwardian eras. Overall, I am fascinated with the manners and customs of Britain that beloved author Jane Austen captured so well!

I live in Florida and I had to join this team because of Jane. Love her books and P and P is my favorite one. I need to lose ten or twelve more pounds and if I can get my mind straight I will.

Hi! My name is Danielle, and I live in beautiful Montana. I would have to say that the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice is my favorite rendition of any Jane Austen novel. There are loads of good versions of her novels, but thats my favorite.

Hi - My name is Elsa and I'm from Milwaukee, WI and am a HUGE Jane Austen fan! My favorite P&P movie version is the BBC one w/Colin Firth! Love it!!

I just bought the BBC version of Emma (tonight) that aired a few weeks ago on Masterpiece Theatre (PBS)! My personal favorite book is Persuasion.

This team is just right up my alley! emoticon

I'm from Seattle and SO glad to find this group because my family thinks I'm totally NUTS. Have watched P & P too many times to count and read the book once (so far). Am a huge fan of all things BBC (my kids bought me the "Romance Collection" from Costco for my birthday).

Hi, I am Sher and I am living in Phoenix, AZ. I originally hail from the OBX, NC. I absolutely love Keira Knightley's interpretation of Elizabeth Bennet. I have read Sense and Sensibility, but didn't like the Kate Winslet version of it. I have yet to read anything else and I absolutely hated Emma starring Gwnyth Patrow. emoticon

Hello fellow Janeites! My name is Joanna, but all my friends call me Jo. I am orginally from Ohio but am now living in Charleston, SC. Had enough of the cold, grey, snowy winters so I came to the sunshine!

My cousin introduced me to Andrew Davies P&P and I fell in love with it. I watched it so much that I wore out my VHS tapes and my parents bought me the dvd's. This was years ago and I'm surprised I haven't worn those out as well.

I love all of Jane Austen's works and can re-read them at any time!

xoxo Jo

It's really amazing except the part where there is Baltimore County and Baltimore City. Why not just pick one over the other? Well, we live in the "city" part and get our trash collected twice a week so that's a plus.

Hi, Christygirl! It sounds like you've found the right group. We're all a little crazy for Jane Austen here. Feel free to add your comments to any old or new threads...movies, sequels, your favorite Mr. Darcy, etc.! We have also been doing virtual walking tours related to Austen & her books the past couple of months if you want to join in. And we're slowly but surely starting a reading group. Welcome!

This is totally cracking me up. I was told that there is a spark team for EVERYTHING, and I see that its right. I'm a HUGEE addict of JA, Pride being my all time fav. Love the movie and Have read the book so many times, I've had to replace the copy along the way. I've got it so bad, I've even read some "sequels" a few times ('Mr. Darcy takes a wife' and Mr. Darcy's Diary') Yup, I'm pretty sad lol
I'm a stay at home mommy of 3 beautiful children, a wife to a full time working, grad school attending student, and a baby sitter to a 11 month old and a 3 year old. I stay pretty busy. I've been on sparks for somewhere around a month and a half and have lost 11 pounds...with MANY more to go. Its so great to find you guys lets get this done TOGETHER!



PS, Im also not very smart, since I posted this in the wrong place and cant figure out how to delete it!!!! Geez, you guys are in for TROUBLE lolool

Hi, Kim! I was so excited to see that you joined, since you are already doing a Jane Austen group! I guess you can't get too much Austen. :-) If you want to tell us a bit about yourself, you can start a new thread in the Introductions forum. And I'm sure you've already seen some of the other stuff. There's a walking tour going on, which is active. And a book group, where we're off to a slow start reading through the works of JA from the beginning. So, welcome, and thanks for joining!

Welcome, Copiecarrots & Serendipity! It's nice to have you both on the team. We're doing a walking tour this month of sites where Jane Austen lived. And we have a group reading Austen's juvenalia together now, too! And, of course, we all just love to chat about all things Austen. Have fun!

Hi, Iím from St. Louis, MO and new to the team. Iíve loved Jane Austen since my sophomore year of high school when I picked Pride & Prejudice off the required summer reading list. I went on to read all her books but Pride & Prejudice left its mark on me and has always remained my all time favorite book. I reread it at least once a year.

Welcome Carrots! I think they have a team for just about everything on Sparkpeople. I bet there is an underwater basket weaving team.

So glad you found us. Join us in the June walking challenge!

Hey, just thought I'd introduce myself. My name is Mary and I'm 29, gonna be 30 in August. I LOVE Jane Austen! I wish I had known about this SparkTeam earlier because I would have joined sooner but I didn't even think about looking for book clubs. Anyway, if you look at my spark page you can see me dressed as Jane Austen for Halloween in 05 (I know I look nothing like her but I just LOVE the dresses from the Regency period.) Anyway, I was Elinor Dashwood last year but I don't have any pictures to prove it. Well, I'm happy to be here and simply because I know ya'll will appreciate it, I love P&P so much (Mr. Darcy is my favorite literary character ever) that I named my first weenie dog Fitz and the one I just got, Charlie. I figured if I named Charlie after Darcy's closest friend, they'd have no choice but to like each other.
Well, it's really hot here in AR but it's good to be home after three months in AZ working down on the border with the Border Patrol.
Ok, I'll shut up now!
Oh yeah, just wanted to say that the best version of P&P BY FAR is the 1995 BBC version. Colin Firth was MADE for Darcy. I didn't care much for the Keira Knightley version although the girl who played Jane was REALLY pretty! I watched an old 40's version and it was ok, but the BBC did a much better job.

Welcome! I think you'll really like this team!

You should check out some of our challenges. Right now, our June walking challenge is "walking" the paths of Jane's childhood. We log in the miles we have walked each day to reach our monthly team goal. Some are also reading Jane's juvenalia...I haven't gotten there yet b/c I got overwhelmed with a class I'm taking, but I may join in.

We can do this!

Peace,
Kristi

Hi,

I just found this team by accident while visiting someone else's page. I am from NE Ohio. I have loved Pride and Prejudice since high school. Since we're having our 40 year reunion next year, that's a long time.

I just saw the play at the Cleveland Playhouse in April. It was the second time I've seen the play. I try to go wherever it's put on.

My hubby is tired of me watching the latest movie. I try to see it whenever it's on cable even though I also have the DVD.

I guess this is a good group for me.

Welcome Focused! Which remake do you prefer? We are split between the 1995 A&E version and the new one that just came out. (I think we actually have a whole separate thread dedicated to this.)

If I could even begin to explain how much MORE motivation I have being here!1 Wow!

And I really wasn't having any trouble before! This just makes the journey better.

I love seeing everyone's tickers and I get excited whether people have lost 1 or 100 lbs.

Oh, wow! I think that was it! I don't even know how I remember where it was b/c I was probably just 7 yo. I wasn't in Camp Fire, but I think I was going to a church camp & maybe they were renting it out. What a small world.

Glad you're enjoying this group! I love it, too. It motivates me to come to Spark and keep myself accountable.

My family lives right near Seven Mile Road, not too far from Park Heights Ave., near Northwest High School. It's a nice city but one wrong step and you could be in very nasty places.

Hello! I have been a member of SP since January, but just decided to switch over from caloriecount because it's just THAT much better here.

I'm from Columbia MO and have lots of interests, one of which is Jane Austen.

I actually have "Becoming Jane" on the TV right now and I've enjoyed it quite a lot.

I've moved all over the US, but now I'm in the Nortwest. My parents were born & raised in Southern Ohio, in Lancaster & Gallipolis, which looks close to some of you in OH & WV. I spent many Christmas & summer vacations there as a kid.
