Two of my most well-read friends swear by the book, Love in the Time of Cholera, so I checked it out of the Ocean Springs Library recently, and I finished it tonight.

On the one hand, my prudish self blushed a LOT at all the sex stuff in this love story, but on the other, it was a masterfully written novel that weaves an unforgettable story of the unbelievable potential for forever love. Once captured by Marquez’s masterpiece, I am assuming that one will never forget Florentino Ariza’s love for Fermina Daza.

I noticed online that there is a movie in production based on this novel, but it looked like it might be a foreign movie that would doubtfully make it to South Mississippi. But if it does, I’ll have to check it out.


By the way, for those scoring at home, my attempts at drastically cuttting down my time on the computer is off to a good start these first two days. I mean, there was some sweating and the munchies, but I’m thinking I’ll just take up smoking and I’ll be okay. 🙂

    First you quit blogging (in the daytime) then you start reading sex books thinking about smoking…I would say it is a slippery slope you are on….

    Glad you’re off to a good start! As someone who spends way too much time staring at a computer screen, I’m hopeful that you can serve as an inspiration to us all!

    Thanks, guys!

    Yeah, I don’t know if exchanging vices is good, but at least its variety, no?

    And if I learn anything, I’ll let you know, Bobby! But don’t hold your breath!
