The nice thing about having a huge library is that occasionally you come across a book that you already have…and someone’s given you a duplicate copy of that book. That’s how I came to own two copies of Diana Gabaldon’s OUTLANDER and Nora Ephron’s I FEEL BAD ABOUT MY NECK: AND OTHER THOUGHTS ON BEING A WOMAN. Given that I waxed not-so poetically about the benefit I got out of reading that book, and how much I appreciate Nora’s sensibility, wit and wisdom, I want to share the wealth.
I’m giving away my second copy of I FEEL BAD ABOUT MY NECK on the blog.
In order to win the book, which I can assure you is in excellent condition, please leave a comment here on the blog in response to this question: what life lesson have you recently learned a la Nora Ephron? You don’t have to be a woman to answer the question, you just need to have learned something lately that has stuck with you.
I’ll go first: I’ve found that the universe gives you more than one opportunity sometimes to fix a mistake you keep making. Keep making the same mistake and the same situation pops up. For instance, a month after I moved to Liberty Village I began to see my ex-boyfriend on the same transit route as me on the way to work. The first TWO times I saw him, I ran for the hills, head down, collar up and eyes avoiding. On the third occasion, I went right up to him and said hello. He was so surprised to see me that he cancelled his plan for the evening and we went down to a local watering hole to have a pint and a catch-up. But that’s a story for another time…
Tell me your story in the comments by Sunday, July 15 11:59 p.m. EST and you’re entered to win the book. I’ll pick a winner at random on Monday. Good luck!
