Is it really possible that among all the book people on the Kindle forum, no one remembers Nora? Or appreciates her contributions?

Perhaps it's because everyone who is old enough to appreciate her work is asleep?

Wow, this is a stunner. Never expected this at all. Shocking.

Thanks for the HuffPo link, M. Ratcheson. She will be missed by so many of us.

"Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss." -- I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman, Nora Ephron

A quote:

From "Heartburn"
"I always read the last page of a book first so that if I die before I finish I'll know how it turned out."

I was sad to hear of her passing. I enjoyed her work so much.

What an amazingly perfect quote, @Emily, thank you. Very much. She was a good, and very smart, and incredibly talented lady.

Whenever I'm feeling down I go and reread Heartburn because it always makes me laugh no matter how many times I've read it. What an enormous loss. RIP Nora.
