The Sense and Sensibility challenge

When I saw the Sense and Sensibility challenge posted at austenprose.com I knew I had to sign up. And since I am joining I wanted to make a blog to write about the films and books that I watch and read.

Here are the challenge description from austenprose:

Click on the tab and select the Sense and Sensibility Bicentenary Challenge 2011. Leave a comment including the name of the book or movie read or viewed and a link to your blog review.
