Dear John...

It is no secret that I am a Nicholas Sparks fan. My all time favorite book he wrote is The Notebook followed closely by Message In A Bottle. If you have never read any of his books or seen any of the movies made from his books then.......where have you been?
I just finished his book Dear John and would recommend it, especially if you plan on seeing the movie. I haven't seen the movie yet so I can't say how good it is but the book was very good.

Nicholas Sparks writes books that tug and pull at your heartstrings. Oh, and by the way, grab a box of tissues to have handy, especially around pages 240-255.

A special thanks to daughter-in-law Randy, she let me borrow her copy to read.

I am a Nicholas Sparks fan too and one of these days I'll get over and see the movie. Maybe I'll even find time to read the book. :)

The tear jerks I can't read but I do like his writing.
By the way, I gave you a Sunshine Award on my blog today. Check it out if you can.

Great read, I am passing mine on to my Mom. My friend gave me her copy. I cried and cried, I am so sappy.

Hugs,

I've read all of his books. Yep, all of them. But this one. I wearied of his "formula" writing and haven't had a desire to read any more.
Maybe I'll have to pick this one up since you recommend it.
I'll get back to you!

I've read all his books... so has J. I've not seen Dear John yet, but looking forward to it. One of my favorites is The Choice.
