New August and September Media  
I don't think I'm going to meet any of my goals this year, but that's okay. I don't think any of those goals are attainable if you're not in a position to have many hours of free time every day, and my free time has been much curtailed from recent years. (Honestly, the only thing I miss about subbing is having hours and hours to read or write or work on Latin while only occasionally handing the kids out some worksheet. Those were the days.)

I got my copy of Jane Eyre back, now I can finish it after I'm done with Yes man.

OMG I LOVE LEMONY SNICKET!!! Those books are amazing, I wish he'd write 14 and 15 and so on until all my questions are answered^^

How was the 2011 Jane Eyre movie? I just saw the BBC miniseries.

I enjoy the Lemony Snicket books, although they can be a little repetitive. I read them on my lunch breaks, because they're quick little reads. I do love how much humor is in them, and the sly way the author teaches kids new words - it's pretty cute.

You know, I liked parts of the new JE movie, but it fell a little flat for me. Part of it is just that I think it's hard to cram that story into two hours. Also, the actors didn't have the most chemistry in the world. In the BBC miniseries, I totally buy that they are soulmates and can't really exist without each other. That doesn't come across as strongly in the movie. But it is a very pretty movie, and it has its moments. Judi Dench is, of course, perfection.

I got used to the repetitveness. Or it's maybe not as present in the German edition as it is in the English.

I agree the chemistry in the BBC series was amazing! I saw the series because I couldn't finish the book in time for my seminar. I might have a look into the movie when I come across it. Who is Judi Dench playing?

It's more just the basic plot. Orphans go to new guardian, who treats them badly in some way. Olaf shows up in disguise. No one believes them. They figure out his nefarious plot, etc., etc. I mean, it's fine, but I usually take a break between reading them. I'm only on #6 after all!

Judi Dench plays Mrs. Fairfax. The look she gives Jane when they come back in from the proposal all wet and kissy face is AMAZING.
