In conclusion

The winner of the giveaway is...

Elizabeth of The Endless Road!
Congratulations Elizabeth, and thanks for participating this week! Just email me with your address and I will get it to you as soon as possible.

Here are the results of the poll:

Which is the best recent adaption of Jane Eyre?
Zelah Clarke and Timothy Dalton 1 (20%)
Charlotte Gainsbourg and William Hurt 0 (0%)
Samantha Morton and Ciaran Hinds 0 (0%)
Ruth Wilson and Toby Stephens 4 (80%)

It seems that most of you preferred the most recent version with Ruth Wilson and Toby Stephens. I have seen part of that movie but I never finished it (because it was due back at the library). Now I feel like I should get it and finish it.

Here is a round-up of all of the wonderful posts this week:

The Endless Road- Jane Eyre Intro

Something Fun- Day One

Picklehopper Centre- Jane Eyre Brownies

Something Fun- Chapter Two

All That is Gold- Jane 

Something Fun- The Best and Worst of Jane Eyre

The Endless Road- Jane Eyre Religion

The Endless Road- Movie Review

The Endless Road- Characters and Places

The Endless Road- Book Review

Something Fun- Jane Eyre Tag

The Endless Road- Charlotte Bronte

Thanks to everyone who participated! Some of you posted more than I did! This was my first blog event ever, and I had so much fun hosting it. I wish I could have done more.

A confession:
I decided to do this at the last minute because I thought that the new Jane Eyre was coming out this week and I could review it at the end. That's the reason I didn't have as many posts prepared as I would have liked. Unfortunately, Jane Eyre only came to limited theaters this week, so I still haven't seen it. As soon as it comes out in my area I will post a review.

Thanks again everybody for making this a good first blog event!

Thanks for hosting the event!! :) I would've liked to contribute more, but finals are coming up very soon. The theaters where we live don't seem to be showing Jane Eyre until April, either. :(

Interesting. I don't think I've seen any of the old adaptations in their entirety. But I'm looking forward to the new edition. After watching and loving Alice in Wonderland, I'm interested in seeing the actress is something else.
