(5) Fri May 20 2005 10:26 MST: Linda brought in The Notebook for John and I to borrow. Now that it comes to it, I realize that I've read this book, but I'm not sure where or when. I can only vaguely remember it, but I don't think it was a long time ago, so I think it might have been something I read at my night job. Don't worry, I won't ruin it for John.

If you ruin it for me, does that mean I don't have to watch it?

maybe you read it at our house. I have the book (but I haven't read it yet)

Oh yeah. I think I did. At the same time I read those shopaholic books.

For the record, I didn't cry when I saw it, and I am actually still deciding if I even liked it.There is something to be said of war, even by those who hate it. For example, if it weren't for war, 90% of the love stories adored by women (and men too I guess) would not exist. Period. Case in point may be Rachel's novel? (I haven't read it yet but I think it involves some sordid love tales amidst the Eastern Front).

Balkan Front! and not sordid at all. honestly.
Actually it is more a women's story of the war than a love story. Although there is certainly a romantic element. I think most people who study war are interested in learning from past mistakes to improve chances for peace in the future. But it does make a good backgroud for stories.
