For Australian readers

Target stores are currently having a nation-wide DVD sale - including several BBC costume drama titles! Here are the dvds that I thought might be of interest:


* Mansfield Park 1983

* Vanity Fair 1998

* Lorna Doone 2000!!!!

* Jane Eyre 2006 

* Emma 1972


*Sense and Sensibility 1981

+ Pride and Prejudice 2005 ($8.99), Pride and Prejudice 1995, Lost in Austen, and several others.

There are a couple of dvds there that I am thinking about buying. I don't have Jane Eyre, or S&S 1981. A friend (who happens to read my blog) read in one of my posts that I was keen to watch this version of S&S. She very kindly lent me her copy! Which I was thrilled about, of course. :-) (Still haven't got round to writing a review. . . I'll do it soon!) In fact, I liked it so much that I am considering buying my own copy.

Also, I am almost tempted to buy myself a second copy of Lorna Doone. You see, the cover of it is different to my copy - it would be nice to have both dvd covers to look at and admire. Plus, it would mean that I could lend one copy to friends, and still have the other copy for me to watch whenever I like! I suffer from Lorna Doone withdrawal symptoms whenever I lend my copy to someone else. It would be very convenient to have a spare copy on hand. *Sighs*. . . you know you're addicted to a movie when you watch it almost every weekend, and think about it every weekday. :P

Anyway, I just thought I'd let you know about this. It's a great opportunity to get these movies at a decent price - you won't get them cheaper in Australia, unless you manage to pick up a copy on eBay.


Current Mood: Calm

Awww. . . surely there are other stores where you can get P&P for a good price? I mean, you live in America, you're spoilt for choice compared to us. . . :P
