I just finished the book One Day and enjoyed the read. I’ve just gotten back into reading for fun, so when I find a good book, I absolutely cannot put it down until I’ve finished. I’m lucky I have the time to
waste spend on this indulgence.
I particularly liked this line out of the book. I think most of us (well, me at least) feel the same way:
“He wanted to live life in such a way that if a photograph were taken at random, it would be a cool photograph. Things should look right. Fun; there should be a lot of fun and no more sadness than absolutely necessary.”
I love this book even if I’m not yet done with it. I love the character of Emma Morley. She’s so funny.

❝The main thing is that I think about you alot, that’s all. Dex and Em. Em and Dex. Call me sentimental but there is no one in the world that I’d like to see get dysentery more than you.❞
-Dexter’s letter to Emma (One Day David Nicholls)
❝That’s why Lone was everyone’s first choice. She’s interested in engaging the audience with the story and the characters but also has great artistic integrity. She doesn’t like fakery or manipulation. As a Dogme-95 artist, she won’t put a song on the soundtrack if it doesn’t fit the scene. The film is emphatically not a Hollywood version of One Day.❞
David Nicholls on Director Lone Scherfig.
“NOT A HOLLYWOOD VERSION OF ONE DAY!”
Just wanted to make that clear.
He also talks a bit about the film towards the end : ).
