Do You Downton?
February 08, 2013
I have a confession, I'm addicted to fiction. It doesn't matter what medium: television, movies, books, or audiobooks. I spend a significant amount of time discussing make-believe people with anyone who will listen. In fact, the only thing that makes a story better (in my opinion) is a British accent. Clearly, you can see why Downton Abbey has my heart all aflutter. My obsession runs so deep that I managed to get a hold of the entire 3rd season on DVD a few months ago (it's a long story that involves a region-free DVD player and a trip to London).
For the few remaining hold-outs, Downton Abbey is a British TV show that revolves around the soap-opera-like machinations of the Grantham family and their many servants, all of whom live in a beautiful castle-like abbey called (you guessed it) Downton Abbey. What started as a six episode PBS mini-series is now in its third season and will be filming a fourth.
If you're already spending your Sunday nights with O'Brien, Thomas, and the whole Crawley-Grantham clan, we've got the books for you!
