shaken & stirred

welcome to my martini glass


things that are also good dept.

Can't believe I forgot to mention what is truly the best news of last week -- Sony snapped up rights to The Jane Austen Book Club.

Sony Pictures Entertainment has optioned feature film rights to Karen Joy Fowler's best-selling novel The Jane Austen Book Club, reports Variety.

The book centers around five women and a man who live in California and meet periodically to discuss Austen novels. Using Austen as the springboard, the book delves into the life of each club member.

Published by the Putnam imprint Madian Wood (sic), the novel has been on the best-seller lists for 13 weeks and has been selling briskly in foreign territories.

So they didn't quite get the imprint right. Still: yay!
