"I wish I had died before I loved anyone but her."
If you have ever loved, then I suggest reading "The Paris Wife" by Paula McLain. The love story of Ernest Hemingway and Hadley Richardson told from Hadley's perspective.

Winner of note-cards give-away is Sharon Taylor of A Lifestyle thing. Congrats to you, Sharon.

You had me at Hemingway and his life in Paris - should be a great read and perfect for this week before Valentine's Day... but with no snow days in sight, I'll have to carve out some time this weekend!

Sounds like a wonderful read. I should be banned from entering any bookstore right now but this is certainly tempting!

How did you happen to read this book? I just went to Amazon to read about it--and it has not been released yet. Did you have an advance copy?

Let me know what you are reading?
Hope you are having a month of love this February!

We can swap reads for crafty projects.
Thanks for your kind comments.

Add that book to your "piles"-

Love to read and am trying to read more...than just the blogs....which as you know can be very time consuming.
