  1. Interesting mix of books. I read Sanditon last year just before the tv adaptation aired. Too flimsy really to know how it would have developed.
    I’ve recent,yo started listening to the podcast from Jolenta Greenberg and Kristen Meinzer – is their book connected to the By the Book project?

    • How was the Sanditon adaptation? I am waiting to watch it until after I have read the story. The Greenberg and Meinzer book is part of their By the Book project. I don’t know much about it, but I am secretly hoping that it is a collection of what they have learned by living by all the self-help books.
