Melissa of Yummy Goods has developed something of an obsession with Jane Eyre.  And since Jane and I are old and very dear friends, I just had to join in the fun.  Are you a fan of the Brontes?  Go to Melissa's blog or click on the button to the right to find out more and join in the fun of the Bronte-along!

"Gentle reader, may you never feel what I then felt. May your eyes never shed such stormy, scalding, heart-wrung tears as poured from mine.  May you never appeal to Heaven in prayers so hopeless and so agonized as in that hour left my lips; for never may you, like me, dread to be the instrument of evil to what you wholly love" (Chapter 27).

Let the swooning begin!  -- Joan

  2. Oh, I just watched "Wuthering Heights" a couple of weeks ago. Heathcliff and Cathy, such tormented souls.

  3. I love this BBC version of Jane Eyre. I was captivated with it when it first aired.

  4. I can't believe I still haven't read this book yet, and I was an English and writing major in college! I have it on my shelf, and just need to make the time for it. Now I'm totally motivated!
