And now I will confess something I am very much ashamed of: I have never read Jane Eyre.
I am now pausing while I can feel your virtual rotten tomatoes smashing into my face. I am sorry. I have never read it. Or at least, not the whole thing. Surely I read enough of it in tenth grade English to get by with a quickie book report. But that’s all.
And is it sad of me that I only now want to read it because the new movie looks so good? And I know Rochester is supposed to be on the homely side, but I have to say, he’s the reason I’m so excited to go see the movie. I suppose if I invest a couple of hours into a movie, I want Rochester to be at least ambiguously handsome. I guess I just like eye candy.
Here is the trailer:
I want to squeeze in reading it before I break down and watch the movie.
And so, this will be our book club book for June.
I am very sorry to say that after four daring attempts, I have been unsuccessful at developing a recipe for pomegranate Turkish Delight. I was going to have this big Narnia celebration, and we were all going to be so happy.
Forgive me, Connie! And thank you to my good friend Marcia who toiled with me in my kitchen on attempt #3.
Well, today is the release of Prince Caspian. I bought the Three-Disc Collector’s Edition this morning. I used to say that if I were a teenager, I would have a crush on Peter. Who was I kidding? I have a crush on King Peter.
For all of you who are smart enough to just buy Turkish Delight, I did find Loukoumi, the New Zealand company that made the candy Edmond ate in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. They have a bunch of flavors, including pomegranate. Click here to go to their American distributer.
