Some mornings I wake and want to write my thoughts down right away.
Like today while I'm reading this book that I spotted on someone's blog.
It's the oddest of books ..... good but odd in that I keep thinking it's set in the 50's/60's or 70's when in fact it is modern day as it includes references to Bridget Jones Diary. The characters also have mobile phones and the internet.
It's about a girl in Sweden who corresponds with a girl in Iowa by handwritten letters. They discuss their lives and books.
The Swedish girl goes to visit Amy in Iowa only to find that Amy has died.
She goes on to open a bookshop in the one horse town of Broken Wheel and stocks it with the thousands of books that she found in the house of her friend.

I won't tell you anymore in case you want to read it, other than to say there are many referrals to real books old and new.
What caused me to put pen to paper today was what I read on page 146....
The legendary writer Ernest Hemingway once had a wager that he could write a story in under ten words.
He won the bet he wrote : For sale baby shoes never worn
Time to put the book down and get on with things
