Ruth lent me David Nicholls's newish book One Day and it is FABULOUS. It basically follows two friends, a boy and a girl, on one day of their lives every year. They're in their 20s right now and I can relate so much with the girl, Emma. Such a good read. And here's something Dexter (the boy), wrote to Emma:

"You're gorgeous, you old hag, and if I could give you just one gift ever for the rest of your life it would be this. Confidence. It would be the gift of confidence. Either that or a scented candle."

This post was badly worded, but that quote is wonderful.
