As we have all no doubt heard, February is the love month. And so, we celebrate together, and this is how we do it: we read.
Okay, well, that is how I’m going to do it, anyway. And if by any chance you’d like to do the same, I’d like to make a book suggestion: the memoir I published last year about finding the love of my life after a long wait. It’s called Alone and Together: A Very Short Primer on Happiness, and its a fun, cute story, but that’s not the only reason to read it this month. The other? It’s on sale.
That’s right: for the next five days, I’m marking down the Alone and Together ebook from $3.00 to just $1.00. In addition, everyone who leaves a review on Amazon.com during the month of February will receive a printed copy of the book–or any other book of mine (your choice)–in the mail and signed by me. Just send me an email with the link to your review.
A bit about the book: Written as a letter to a young friend, Alone and Together: A Very Short Primer on Happiness offers a little advice and a lot of stories about being lonely, being in love, and being both at the same time.
Humorous, pithy and always coffee house conversation-worthy, its thirty-five memorable life lessons include: “Love Is Just a Feeling,” “Being Alone Is Good,” “It’s Okay To Be Strange,” “Don’t Fall in Love With Your Brother,” “Don’t Be Like Other People,” “Beware of Middle Age,” “Don’t Settle for Eyes that Don’t Glow,” and “When It’s True Love, You Have to Turn the Car Around.”
Here is an excerpt:
“When you can read a book, read a poem, take walks together, that is love.’
That is what my dad told me one time.
‘When you can be alone together,’ he said, ‘That is love.’
He was right.”
