D is for Downton Abbey

Don't despair, there is life after print!  Tens of thousands of viewers tuned in to Downton Abbey over its six seasons on PBS.  The ups and downs of the Crawley family, along with the Dowager Countess' bon mots, became conversation topics for people from all walks of life.  Publishers were quick to hop on this interest and published a variety of books.  Here are a few from my collection.

The World of Downton Abbey introduced us to the Crawley family as we knew them in  Season 1.

The Great War has ended and life at Downton takes many new turns in The Chronicles of Downton Abbey.

My current favorite, A Year in the Life of Downton Abbey, detailing all of the celebrations and events during the year for an aristocratic family.

A lovely gift from three wonderful friends, The Unofficial Downton Abbey Cookbook.

These two are heading onto my Amazon Wish List.

Available May 2, 2017.


  1. Oh, I "hear" that PBS is doing a show very similiar to Downton and I hope that's true. I did love that show so much and hated when it ended. Happy midweek!

  2. My Inlaws watched every episode. I never have seen it but its on my list of things to watch. The color book is super cute!

  3. I loved Downton Abbey. Then again, I enjoy many programs from the BBC.

  4. I've heard they're making a movie too. I really hope it's true. I loved Downton Abbey.
