Masterpiece Theatre featuring Jane Austen

This morning we received these bookmarks from our PBS affiliate and I love the quote:
"The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid." ~~Jane Austen (1775-1817) Northanger Abbey

She didn't mince words, did she? I'm really looking forward to watching the adaptations of her novels on PBS, and the new drama based on her own "bittersweet love life", entitled Miss Austen Regrets. Click on the picture to enlarge the bookmark (a beautiful black and white toile--how perfect) to check the dates, or click here.
