One Day

“To acquire the habit of reading is to construct for yourself a refuge from almost all of the miseries of life.” ~ W. Somerset Maugham

Ah, books. You are the aloe to my sunburn. Ow. Too much sun.

Incidentally, I’m reading a great book called One Day that chronicles a couple that’s not a couple by giving us a glimpse of them over a 20-year timespan. Each chapter describes their life every July 15 from the 80s to the whatever-we’re-calling-this decade and each chapter brings that devilish Will they? Won’t they? tension. David Nicholls’ style is a bit Nick Hornby-ish, and I’m a sucker for reading about blokes on the telly and swimming costumes.

Oh, and it’s gonna be a movie. So listen up, Zac Efron, if they offer you the role, please decline. Anne Hathaway and Patricia Clarkson are already on board, and I would like to enjoy one quality romantic comedy next summer.

  1. Never understood the point of romantic comedy. I think the comedy tends to spoil the romance. Unless it’s a very dark comedy or just a few isolated spots of comedy in it.
