Anyone who loves Jane Eyre is a friend of mine. :)

I have an unhealthy obsession with Jane...I love the book, all the movies, I even went to England to stand in the room where Charlotte Bronte pulled up her covers at night, to try to feel the inspiration and imagination that gave us such a brilliant story.

Long live Jane Eyre!
