{ Blog 365 #25 - Read with me....}

I love reading, and love books, but I don't always have the time to sit and indulge. I try to, and usually the only time I can get some reading in, is right before bed. 
I'm sure you know where I'm headed with that thought.  Hahahahah
Yep, a few lines in and I have fallen asleep with the book on my lap.  But today, I decided that it was a reading day.  I got up, did what I needed to and then grabbed my book.
So, come with me as I start reading Longbourn.  If you're a fan of Jane Austen, and more specifically Pride and Prejudice, you will probably enjoy this one.  It is the re-imagined story of Pride and Prejudice, but told from below stairs, and through the eyes of the servants.




So far I'm really enjoying it.  
Not only am I a huge Jane Austen fan, but I also quite enjoy books or series about the servants in these big manor houses in England.  I remember watching Upstairs Downstairs, and lovinggggg the series.  It was like a special treat every time a new episode began.  I may need to re-watch.  Hmmm!





Do you ever have a reading day? 

A day where you grab a book, and just read.  Sometimes in between cooking dinner, or waiting in the car for one of the kids or grocery pickup?  

On days like these, I drag the book around everywhere I go, and any chance I get, I read a page or two.  It actually helps me get through my reading pile.


  1. That sounds like a great book! I love reading about life from a "downstairs" perspective.

  2. Sometimes I can do that. Reading books on my phone helps me to read throughout the day like that. Of course, nothing beats the feel of a "real" book in your hands. Not sure that I've ever read Pride and Prejudice (know it's the favorite of quite a few) but the story from the servant perspective sound super interesting.

  3. Have you read The Mysterious Death of Miss Jane Austen? Really good book. But yes, when I carry my book from room to room and read it while the dinner is on the stove or for a break, here and there, that's how you know it's a good one. I might have to restart the Upstairs Downstairs series too.
