Excerpt from The Notebook - Nicholas Sparks

"My life? It isn't easy to explain. It has not been the rip-roaring spectacular I fancied it would be, but neither have I burrowed around with the gophers. I suppose it has most resembled a bluechip stock: fairly stable, more ups than downs, and gradually trending upward over time. A good buy, a lucky buy, and I've learned that not everyone can say this about his life.

But do not be misled.

I am nothing special; of this I am sure.

I am a common man with common thoughts, and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough."

ME TOO! I think that it is the best novel he's written. I haven't read the last 2 though...I need to get on that... :)

I read Nicholas Sparks' book, Three Weeks With My Brother. It is an amazing book and really makes you appreciate his other books knowing what he went through growing up. I recommend highly.
