Is anyone--besides me that is--watching Tess on Masterpiece Theatre?

Of course, I know it's going to end horribly, but I'll still *torture* myself viewing the second half tonight.

Can't wait to hear your thoughts about Ten Things I Hate About Me...that one's caught my eye. Oh, and in case I didn't tell you, I had to go order Starry Rift after your reviews of the first few stories. You really ought to get a kick-back from Amazon or something for all the business you generate. ;)

How the heck do you have time to read all that in one week?!?!?! haha...entirely jealous. And yay! Austen's "Emma!" :D

Looks like you had a great week of reading! I've never read anything by Austen which is embarrassing to admit :)

I'm not watching Tess, I started to, but the filming is too "dark" for me. I couldn't pay attention.
I have Emma on my TBR.

That's certainly a lot of books to have read! I watched Tess earlier this year on the BBC (here in England) and I loved it!

I am impressed with your ability to read so much in a week! I have TIVO'd Tess - can't wait to get some time to watch it!
