Nora Ephron can help you through anything

Nora Ephron

If you're ever blue/sad/heartbroken, or in serious need of a laugh or some hope, read anything by Nora Ephron. Her books are the best pick-me-ups and only get better the second (and third, or fourth) time around. Her movies are a good distraction, too, but reading her stories and thoughts on life is a kind of medicine we couldn't do without. 

This is something you probably already know, but a reminder never hurts.
