Ever thine, ever mine, ever ours

Posted by Jessica on June 3, 2008
Amid all the insultingly obvious product placement in the new Sex & The City movie (I laughed, I cried, I abso-f***ing-lutely loved it), I was thrilled to see Carrie Bradshaw reading and cherishing a book. A real book! For a heroine who writes for a living, Carrie seems to spend more time out on the town than in bed reading. So this was a welcome sight.

But is it a real book? A quick Google search reveals that no one is exactly sure what book she's reading. Here are the top two candidates:

1) Love Letters of Great Men and Women
2) 50 Greatest Love Letters of All Time

Either way, you're sure to get a huge sampling of passionate reading. Who needs Mr. Big when you can read about the loves of Benjamin Franklin, Michelangelo Buonarroti, and even Jack Kerouac?

Other intriguing love letter anthologies found on Goodreads:
1) Other People's Love Letters: 150 Letters You Were Never Meant to See
2) Four Letter Word (collection of fictional letters from great writers like Audrey Niffenegger, Margaret Atwood, and Jonathan Lethem)
3) Love Letters: An Anthology

Melissa What's even better... she checked out the book from the LIBRARY. An institution lost to the Borders, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble mega-bookstores. I applauded that, because it made me remember how much I, too, cherish the public library.
