Bought Anna and the French Kiss for my best friend...

My BFF has 3 girls, 5 and under and works insane hours.  Her poor Kindle has sat collecting dust for a while and she me to recommend a good book for her.  She's had a rough year with her baby being sick and her nephew dying so I wanted something uplifting.

However, despite us being like sisters, our taste in movies and books is completely different.

I decided to buy her Anna and the French Kiss when it was $2.99 and crossed my fingers that she would love it.  I told her I was completely giddy after reading it.

Over the weekend, I got a text "Neglecting my girls to read Anna".

Got another text this morning. "Taking an early lunch.  I need to finish!"

And just now "FANTASTIC!!!  I want to go to Paris now.  Thankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouthankyou!!!!!!!!"

Phew!  So glad she loved it too.

    - Gayle Forman
    "People talk about escapism as if it's a bad thing... Once you've escaped, once you come back, the world is not the same as when you left it. You come back to it with skills, weapons, knowledge you didn't have before. Then you are better equipped to deal with your current reality."
    - Neil Gaiman

    I did!  Thought I didn't love Lola quite as much so I couldn't get as excited about that one
