turkish coffee and jane eyre

At the end of a beloved book, I will enjoy (re)reading the last pages of Jane Eyre today with a cup of Turkish coffee.


It is in vain to say human beings ought to be satisfied with tranquility: they must have action; and they will make it if they cannot find it.

Jane Eyre, chapter xii

another read through Jane Eyre

An image leftover from a never-written holiday post was the inspiration for me to finally buy my own copy of the classic book Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë. The film adaptation is now out in the States, although it doesn’t look like it will make it over to Europe until the fall. Has anyone seen it? What did you think? I will bide my time waiting for the film with another read of this great novel (image via plush palate).

Weekend Links #13

Weekend Links is a collection of the interesting bits and pieces that I’ve come across on the streets and online. The weekly post is my chance to share with you a few things from the week, in a list compiled during the weekend. I hope you enjoy them as well.

A few things I enjoyed this week:
1. Seeing the beautiful 2011 NPR calendar (pictured above)
2. Listening to The Decemberists’ new album The King is Dead streaming online at NPR until the release date on 18 January. Looking forward to their concert at Paradiso on 14 March
3. Anticipating the release of the latest film adaptation of Jane Eyre directed by Cary Fukunaga, which appears to be very inspired by the 2006 BBC production (via spaceships, pictured below)
4. Reading Tom Waits new poem Seeds on Hard Ground about homelessness and poverty
5. Watching Jon Stewart’s response to the events in Arizona
