Coffee Break

I just learned about this wonderful site on the Historical Fiction Online forum where I’m a member. If you haven’t seen it yet, you have to check it out–amazing British actors reading some of the best love scenes in all literature. Does it get better than that? Because I believe in brainwashing my children early, last night Vivi and I listened to Greg Wise (Willoughby in the Emma Thompson version of Sense and Sensibility) read my absolute favorite scene from Persuasion, my absolute favorite Austen book. I’m pretty sure she enjoyed it as much as I did.

    Emma Thompson is married to Greg Wise.

    She is, yes, and they met on the set of Sense and Sensibility, too!

    I listened to him read a scene from North and South and it was awesome! I liked watching Dominic West read – so expressive both in voice and facial expressions to the camera.

    Oh I’ll have to go check this out. More actors for me to drool over, especially if they are reading passages of my favorite books. It’s the accent :)
