But was the book better? This week’s episode is all about book-to-movie adaptations. I talk with my friend, Tsh Oxenreider, about a whole bunch of books that have been turned into movies, and they dissect what makes a good adaptation and debate whether or not you must read the book first.
And, as usual, I admit something not-so-shocking to faithful listeners (or readers). This time, it’s about Jane Austen.
Was the book better than the movie? Listen to our opinions and then weigh in with your own down in the comments!

I love your excellent parenting tips, Mary! Well, your honest take on parenting. Like when you want to celebrate not killing each other :) Or, not reading the book your daughter recommends. I would totally do those things!
Haha! Keeping it real here. ;)
