A New Read

Do you ever get fed up of receiving e-mails from companies you've used and HAD to give them your e-mail address, only to be bombarded by junk e-mail for forever and a day?

Amazon is like that.  Constant e-mails.  I normally delete them without even opening them but one on Tuesday caught my eye and I ended up ordering a book. 

It's the first "Real" book I've bought in a long time.  I moved over to the dark side when I got my iPad.  Sorry!

The title seemed to jump out of the e-mail and grab my attention (which I guess is the whole point) and the cover of the book is, of course, very "London".

It's the story of Maya and a note she hands to a stranger on her train.

The note changed everything...

One very ordinary day, Maya Flowers sees a new commuter board her train to London, and suddenly the day isn't ordinary at all. Maya knows immediately and irrevocably, that he is The One.

But the beautiful man on the train always has his head in a book and never seems to notice Maya sitting just down the carriage from him every day. Eventually, though, inspired by a very wise friend, Maya plucks up the courage to give the stranger a note asking him out for a drink. After all, what's the worst that can happen?

And so begins a story of sliding doors, missed opportunities and finding happiness where you least expect it.

Based on the author's true story, The Note is an uplifting, life-affirming reminder that taking a chance can change everything..

In true Amazon tradition the book arrived the next day and I'm just about to start reading it. 

Lets hope it's worth the hype.
