As a child, reading was one of my favorite things to do. I could spend hours laying in my bed, getting lost in an imaginary world. However, the main reason I read so much as a child was because we grew up without a television. Yup. That’s another story.
As an adult, reading is still one of my favorite things to do…but now I lack the time to just sit down and read for fun. Instead of reading, I find that watching a movie is usually quicker. Oh, and it helps that as an adult, I have a television.
My husband and I enjoy watching movies together, especially British television and films. Netflix has a pretty decent selection of British films/miniseries that we have absolutely loved.
North and South: Based on the 1855 book written by Elizabeth Gaskell (fun fact: her editor was Charles Dickens), this miniseries depicts a poignant love story about a middle-class woman and a textile mill businessman.
