Miss Austen is now my new favorite author. Pride and Prejudice is my current favorite. Hell, it'll probably be my all-time favorite. I'm also a fan of Emma.
I'm embarrassed to admit that a mini-series sparked my interest. I was up watching Lost in Austen until the wee hours of the morning a few years ago. Sadly, it's no longer on Netflix. From there, I read Pride and Prejudice as a free Kindle book and I haven't stopped. Cheesy fan fic? Sold!
My current favorite is the YouTube series The Lizzie Bennet Diaries which is a contemporary web series in conjunction with 'real time' Twitter feeds and Tumblr accounts. It's a beautiful thing. I watched the first few videos and thought "This has a definite Hank Green vibe about it." I was totally right, he's one of the developers.
If you don't have that kind of time to devote to watching hours of YouTube video, this one makes me laugh.
