  •  What a great topic for tonight! And thanks for (6+ / 0-)

    patiently replaying that scene between The Man in Black and Inigo, cfk.  I'd forgotten that.  It was my little boy (long since grown up) who first introduced me to The Princess Bride.  We watched it together.

    Although seriously tempted to vote for Harry Potter or the March family, I went with Elizabeth Bennett and the rest of the gang.  I really like Elizabeth.

    I'm reading chick lit at the moment, about to finish one book and start on Mr. Churchill's Secretary, a mystery I've borrowed from the library. I do hope it's not written in the present tense--if it is, I'll take it back to the library tomorrow.  There are too many other books piled up on my nightstand waiting for me to read them to waste time on a book I wouldn't enjoy.

    I just finished reading Call the Midwife on Kindle and am still trying to recover from the author's description of English "workhouses." Also waiting on Kindle is the novel War Brides. I'm a sucker for World War II stories!

    •  I like Elizabeth, too (4+ / 0-)

      That story has so many wonderful and fully drawn characters.  It will live forever, I believe.

      I like WW II stories.  Let me know how War Brides is.  That was a fascinating time and there were so many!
