If you like "Pride and Prejudice", you will really love "Evelina" by Frances Burney...she's Austen's predecessor as 18th Century lady novelist, and her use of absurdity in humor will make you laugh out loud (even though it's the kind of funny that would never work on screen). Hope you can find a copy...it's really a fun novel :)

If you love history, you might want to check out any of Ken Burns' documentary films.

His latest is "The War," which is about World War II. It's being shown in the United States now on public TV, so it might not be available to you for a while.

He's done films on the Civil War, jazz, baseball. It seems no matter the topic, he makes it really interesting.

Of course, I'm not sure how available they are in Europe, but you could check them out! Besides, they're really long ("The War" is 14 hours) so they would keep you busy for a good while.

Good luck finding some good entertainment!

The Mark of the Lion Series by Francine Rivers

"A Voice in the Wind"

All of the above books can be found on Amazon.com if you are interested. If you want more of a description of them, just let me know.

Classic Movies:

The Sound of Music

Roman Holiday

Anne of Green Gables

Newer Movies:

The Parent Trap

Rat Race (this movie is pure silliness, so it's great for a day when you're so brainfogged that nothing makes sense anyway!)

Anna and the King

TV Shows on DVD:

The Cosby Show

I Dream of Jeannie

Bewitched

Gilligan's Island

I hope you can find some entertainment that suits your fancy. :) Happy watching/reading.

If you like history, perhaps you'll like these two books. They cover a history, culture, and land that few people know much about. They can both be found at Amazon.com if you want to check them out.

"Sisters: Coming of Age and Living Dangerously in the Wild Copper River" by Samme Gallaher and Aileen Gallaher

This one is a true story about a girl, Aileen, who moved to Alaska in 1926. The book was written by her sister, Samme, and it includes letters that Aileen wrote while in Alaska.

"Tisha: The Story of a Young Teacher in the Alaska Wilderness" by Robert Specht

This is also a true story. It is about a girl who goes to Alaska in 1927 to be a teacher.

I really liked the BBC series, Coupling--it's kind of a combination between sex and the city and the american sitcom, Friends.

Janet Evanovich, her Stephanie Plum books......One for the Money, Two for the Dough, etc. They can be a bit on the blue side and the language off color, but they are laugh out loud funny. They are not for everyone, but I eagerly await every new one and then read them in one day...

DVD's:

Love Actually

The Cutting Edge (older)

The Magic of Ordinary Days

Emma

Just a few.....

I"m a chick-lit girl!! I love the shopaholic series! and the sisterhood of the traveling pants series, the nanny diaries, anything fun like that. I also love elisabeth elliot and joni erickson tada, both very inspiring.

tv - i like hgtv, the food network ,and reality shows- american idol, next top model, survivor, beauty and the geek,project runway!!

lately since I haven't had much energy I have been listening to books on tape, and that is an easy way to pass time if you can find them. does anyone know where to get them cheap? i norm get them from the librarby, but being in a small town equals small selection
