Wild for Downton Abbey
If you're as crazy about the return of the PBS series Downton Abbey as we are at the library, last week's Season 2 premiere must have you yearning to read more about this fascinating time in Edwardian history. Publishers are well aware of the popularity of the mini-series (congratulations for winning the Golden Globe this weekend) and are rushing to put out books about the grandeur of English estates in pre and post-WW1. So, watch the show and read more about this bygone era in books like Lady Almina and the Real Downton Abbey: The Lost Legacy of Highclere Castle or The World of Downton Abbey written by the niece of series creator Julian Fellowes.
If you missed Season 1, we have the entire season here on DVD to bring you up to speed on what's happening with the Grantham and Crawley families.
