Thanks to those who filled out the form so fast for me… I believe I‘ve got times selected that will work for all of you. 🤞🏻 I did schedule some parties for this weekend already, but no biggie if nobody can make it on short notice.

Signup here:


Tagging people who have partied before, but everyone is welcome, #PemberLitten or not.😉

DebinHawaii Thank you! I didn‘t fill out the form but I am lazing about (hopefully) all this weekend & when I get home today I‘ll sign up. I can see the times & sign ups but it won‘t let me type in on my phone.🤷🏻‍♀️But if it‘s only me & you don‘t want to do a party, I can shoot for some later in the month. 5mo

DebinHawaii And how did I get to this stage in life without realizing Bridget Jones The Edge of Reason was loosely based on Persuasion?!?! 🤯 (edited) 5mo
sprainedbrain @DebinHawaii you are not alone! I didn‘t either. 😂 5mo
DebinHawaii OK, I feel slightly better & I corrected my Bridget spelling! 😜 5mo
OriginalCyn620 I‘m all signed up! Thanks, Jenni! 5mo
sprainedbrain @Tineke just making sure you saw this… I didn‘t schedule some for 11 am my time, which I think will work for you based on your survey… those are 6 pm your time, if I figured my times correctly. 😅 4mo
Tineke @sprainedbrain yes I did. It's actually 8 hours later by my estimation, because of daylight savings time or something. It's complicated... but I'll try to make some time. I can only watch the Bridget Jones one and Modern persuasion as those are the only ones streaming on anything here. 4mo
sprainedbrain @Tineke if you join the watch parties, I stream the movies through zoom and share my screen, so you can watch too. 😊 4mo
Tineke @sprainedbrain oh that's handy. But do you use English subtitles by any chance? 4mo
sprainedbrain @Tineke I sure can! 4mo

Persuasione | Jane Austen

The end of a lovely journey. I really loved this book (which I had never read before.) Reading the books in order a chapter a day really added to the experience. Thanks so much @sprainedbrain #PemberLittens

sprainedbrain I‘m so glad you loved it! Thank you for being a #PemberLitten! It has been great. ❤️ 5mo

Persuasion | Jane Austen

Rereading this with the #PemberLittens was a real treat! Some details I had forgotten, and it was so cool to discover them again amongst this fun group. P&P is still my fave Austen, but this one is a very close second.

Thank you Jenni, for hosting this awesome group…you are a true rock star! 😉

sprainedbrain Thank YOU Cynthia! You‘ve been such a wonderful #pemberlitten and I‘ve had so much fun! ❤️ 5mo

Emma | Jane Austen

It‘s been a lifetime since I‘ve read any Jane Austen.. I loved the development of Emma‘s character , all the gossip & intrigue. I enjoyed the formality of the writing , the language being so proper… a nice change from all our modern slang & a pleasure to read. Thankyou @sprainedbrain for the daily updates , they were perfect & kept the reading moving along nicely. Looking forward to reading Persuasion with you #Pemberlittens

TrishB Lovely pic ❤️ 7mo
Cathythoughts @TrishB Thanks Trish, that pink is a dress I got for my nieces wedding , at the beginning of 2020 … still no wedding .. covid 😭… 7mo
TrishB @Cathythoughts I know that story! Bloody Covid, my niece rearranged 3 times. Eventually got married with 15 people. All supposed to have a party beginning of July, but that‘s cancelled now too. I hope your niece has hers soon 🤞🏻🤞🏻 7mo

Cathythoughts @TrishB it‘s now planned for this September… but all is so uncertain again (edited) 7mo
DivineDiana I enjoyed Emma for all of the reasons you mentioned! It is refreshing to read beautiful,formal language. ❤️ 7mo
Cathythoughts @DivineDiana It‘s my first #pemberlitten read & I was blown away ( more slang 😂) by the language… I was back in school when I read a book this old time … and such a great read 7mo
sprainedbrain I‘m so glad you joined us! ❤️ 7mo
Centique And what a gorgeous cover too! 7mo
Cathythoughts @Centique It‘s a beauty alright 7mo

So I'm thinking about rewatching the Emma Approved webseries starting in June - I should stay far enough ahead on the chapter-a-day reread of the book that watching the series won't have any spoilers!! 😂 Are any of the other #PemberLitten s out there interested in joining me? I'll be following the story as posted here - http://www.pemberleydigital.com/emma-approved/story - & trying to watch one video a day (ish). If anyone else wants to ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) watch, I'll post a schedule & weekly discussion questions. This series was created by the same team that made the Lizzie Bennet Diaries. I haven't seen it in quite a while (I think it came out in 2017 or 2018?? Ish??) but remember it being another great adaptation. Let me know if any of you are interested in joining me!!

sprainedbrain I want to join you! I‘ve never watched but I really enjoyed the Lizzie Bennet Diaries, so do want to check it out. 8mo
Sharpeipup I‘m interested and second @sprainedbrain 8mo

TheAromaofBooks @sprainedbrain @Sharpeipup - Yay!! I would love to have you along. I already made a complicated schedule 😂 I've never really hosted anything like this before, so let me know if this spreadsheet makes sense!!! Jenni, if you think this would “of general interest“ to the #PemberLitten community, feel free to mention it to them sometime!! I'm excited about rewatching this. Also, apparently it's way older than I remember - 2013! 😲 8mo
sprainedbrain @TheAromaofBooks I can tag the whoooole PemberLittens list here, if you don‘t mind? 8mo
