Mmm. Delicious. I completely approve.

Indeed. :)

It does raise the question: are there Austen audiobooks read by men? Most of the ones I come across are read by actresses.

Not sure, but I know there are Georgette Heyer books read by men!

(I have a deep and abiding love for Georgette Heyer. So that makes me happy, anyway.)

I remember hearing somewhere that, back when the film came out, Jeremy Northam did an audiobook version of Emma. Sadly, it appears to be very difficult to find. But it does exist!

And now I will dream of this, wistfully. :) I bet Jeremy Northam would convey Austen's humor admirably.

I have no doubt of that. Maybe eBay?

What a great site! And it has a "Great Expectations" reading, so I can use it on Dickensblog. Thank you!

Attractive men reading great literature. There is no downside!
