Reading Nora Ephron

My friend Rebecca Serle recently tweeted about how reading the late, great Nora Ephron is basically a cure-all. Last night, not necessarily in need of any cures, but still wanting a little pick-me-up, I picked up my well-worn copy of Ephron’s last book, I REMEMBER NOTHING.

And when I finished that, I moved onto I FEEL BAD ABOUT MY NECK. Here is a quote on reading that is so right-on, I have to share it:

“Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it’s a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it’s a way of making contact with someone else’s imagination after a day that’s all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
