Literary YouTube

It all started with the Lizzie Bennet Diaries.  A classic story updated for modern time and told across a variety of media platforms.  We all saw it.  I even gave money to the Kickstarter!

Unfortunately, it ended.

But it spawned a new trend!!!

Classic novels told as modern vlogs!!!

I've been watching Emma Approved, brought to you by the same people that brought us the Lizzie Bennet Diaries.

The production is high quality and I'm interesting in actually seeing Jane Fairfax!

But now, there are some new entries into the fold.  And I think they are all from Canada.

Green Gables Fables.  It's Anne of Green Gables.  This happens to be my favorite series of books ever.  (Yeah, I'm a red head).  I just started this series.  It has more of a homemade look, but since Anne is vlogging.. I totally get it.

The Autobiography of Jane Eyre.

It's another Canadian series.  Also, it's very home-made-y.  But I'm enjoying it.  This series I am actually caught up with!

And I stumbled across The March Family Letters about five minutes after I stumbled across Green Gables Fables.

So I don't know about it yet..

I'm astounded!

Are there any more out there?
