Charlotte Bronte birthday

"Procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday."
- Don Marquis

And I didn't keep up yesterday with the fact it was Charlotte Bronte's birthday. Like many teenage girls of my generation Jane Eyre was one of my all time favourite books. I won it as a prize at church when I was 13. Loved it! All that anguish and suffering then a wonderful underdog happy ending.

Perfect. And I still love it. I think I've watched every film and serialised version of it and have to say my favourite is the last with Toby Stephens and Ruth Wilson. But every time I watch a film version it sends me back to the book because however good the film it can't reproduce Charlotte Bronte's writing.
