‘Bridgerton’ books are popular again, thanks to Netflix show | App

NEW YORK (AP) — Shonda Rhimes was on vacation when she stumbled upon the first book in the Regency-era “Bridgerton” book series, “The Duke & I,” by Julia Quinn and quickly was all in.

“I immediately went out and bought all the rest of her books,” said Rhimes in a recent interview. “Her way of her with words is delightful. I thought, ‘These are characters I’d want to know.’ They had a universal feeling to them and I thought they’d make amazing television.”
