Welcome aboard, iqjones!  And Bride and Prejudice counts!  Last time around a couple people mentioned that Bride and Prejudice and Clueless were among their faves.

What about Bridget Jones' Diary? I just signed up. I was trying not to, but I LOVE Pride and Prejudice. I also really like Persuasion. I couldn't contain myself!

I love Bride and Prejudice too!!!  Swaps are definetly like crack, I am trying to limit myself to only 2 at a time, but I can't.  Must resist this one, but it is all the Bride and Prejudice/Bridgit Jones lovesr that are persuading me!
