Gazing at a Glorious Great Lakes sunset

Is anyone watching the adaptation of "Sanditon" written by Andrew Davies, and currently playing on PBS in the USA? If so, what do you think?
Me too. I read all his books (I have them in my library), I saw all the movies and series made over the years starting with Laurence Olivier as Mr. Darcy. I visited his memorial house in Chawton Village twice and I am fascinated by the time he lived. Pride and Prejudice is the first movie and book I saw and read when I was a teenager, a long time ago. Then there were Emma, Ellinor and Marianne, Persuasion, etc. By chance I came across Northanger Abbey in an antique shop and read it in two days. Was awesome. When I became an adult I tried to read absolutely everything about Jane Austen like a person. Beautiful timesI am a huge Jane Austen fanatic. And given some of the comments I've seen on the boards recently, I know I'm not alone. Perhaps we might want to start discussing the books after the holiday/new year insanity has settled down? Including the juvenalia--I think Love and Freindship (sic) is one of the funniest things I've ever read! If interested or you have any ideas for a book discussion, feel free to chime in.
