Have you guys read The History of Love, by Nicole Krauss?

It’s a sweet and lovely book if there ever was one. The writing is almost poetic — I read the book with a pencil and a highlighter just so I could be sure to note all of my favorite passages.  (Nerd alert, I know.  But some of the writing was just so memorizing, I couldn’t help it.)

The book weaves together a few different stories of different types of love, building to a satisfying ending where everything comes together.

I read the book for the first time on a plane a few years ago. As the end of the story was building up the plane landed, and I desperately wanted to finish the story without having to pause while exiting the plane (didn’t want to ruin the moment.)  Luckily for me, we ended up with a delay at the arrival gate, and had to sit on the plane for an extra 15 minutes — just enough time for me to finish reading!

Here are a few of my favorite quotes.  If you haven’t read it, they’ll be even more beautiful in context:
