At the Top of My To Be Read Pile

Or...actually, I've just started reading it. Below Stairs is the book that inspired Upstairs, Downstairs and Downton Abbey, and while I never actually watched either of those shows (not because I wasn't interested, but because once I'd missed the beginnings I didn't want to come in mid-show), I'm only one chapter in and already fascinated by Margaret Powell's story of her life in service.

I adore DOWNTON ABBEY, but you are quite right not to start in the middle.

Someday I'm going to set aside some time to rent the dvds and begin from the beginning.
