Book Beginnings: I’ll Have What She’s Having

I’m joining Rose City Reader as she encourages fellow bloggers to share the beginnings of a book we are reading.

I just started reading I’ll Have What She’s Having by Erin Carlson which just came out two days ago. Here’s the publisher’s blurb about the book:

“A backstage look at the making of Nora Ephron’s revered trilogy–

When Harry Met Sally, You’ve Got Mail, and Sleepless in Seattle–which

brought romantic comedies back to the fore, and an intimate portrait

of the beloved writer/director who inspired a generation of

Hollywood women, from Mindy Kaling to Lena Dunham.”


And here’s how the book begins:



MFEO (Made For Each Other)

“God, are we going to get away with this?”

So muttered Nora Ephron, smiling despite herself . . .


What do you think? Would you keep reading?

    Sounds interesting. Not being a movie person, I haven’t seen any of the mentioned films. This week I am featuring Her Dark Half by Paige Tyler. Happy reading!
