The Weekend Skinny

I wanted to share with you a book you should pick up over the weekend and read before you go see it in the theaters.  The name of the book is One Day, it is a #1 International Bestseller and it is coming to theaters next weekend starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess.  The author is British and the book is based in the UK- which makes it even better- I love their accents and slang.  The book is based on 2 characters and checks in on their intersecting lives once a year, every July 15, from 1988 through 2007.

Review from The Times:
 ‘One Day is a wonderful, wonderful book: wise, funny, perceptive, compassionate and often unbearably sad. It’s also, with its subtly political focus on changing habits and mores, the best British social novel since Jonathan Coe’s What A Carve Up. – John O’Connell, The Times.
