• Isla Fisher tells Ryan Reynolds why she has so many copies of Jane Eyre.

Can you guess these books by their second lines? (I did way better on this than I expected.)

  1. Love the text message data — I was just thinking recently that most of the text messages my husband and I send nowadays are transactional (mostly about meeting up for lunch, since we work at the same place), but it’s because we’re together so much of the time that our declarations of love don’t have to be over the phone. Sounds like she came to the same conclusions 🙂 Still, it’s a good reminder to make the effort in person to tell him how I feel.
