Dear Frank-
Years ago I started writing notes and putting them in random places like behind paintings in hotels, between the pages at book stores and in Sky Mall Magazines on airplanes. While browsing through a PostSecret book, I found one of my notes. That small ripped piece of paper is featured above. I attended your event last week at CMU. I’m thankful for your ability to speak to people in their broken places.

The power dynamics in the romantic relationship in this book continue to be awfully uncomfortable for me, but I continue to reread it on a semi-regular basis anyways because I am just so endlessly charmed by Judy's narrative voice. I love Judy so much! But Jervis Pendleton can go jump in a lake.

Photo from the Brian Head Utah burn scar. We drove through this almost every day of our vacation. The fire combined with heavy rainfall washed out the road in places. . . . #Explorediscovershare #photography #brianhead #utah #burn #fire #olympus #olympusem1 #getolympus #travel #roadtrip #utahphotographer #utahphotography #flickr #picoftheday #photooftheday

Dear Frank,
Yesterday I went to Barnes and Noble to get a book on infertility (my husband and I have been trying to conceive for almost a year and have reached the point of needing medical appointments). I picked up a PostSecret book while there and clinging to that book is the only thing that kept me from crying while I had to look through the pregnancy and baby type books to find a book to help my hurting heart. I didn’t find what I was looking for but I bought the postsecret book and wanted you to know that it brought me comfort.

The first time I read this book was in high school english class. I remember clearly how delighted I was to read this book at the time. High school english is heavy on the Serious, Depressing & Literary, but this book had whimsy. It was still about serious topics (particularly focusing on censorship and free speech) but it managed to be that while also being a charming and fun read! REVOLUTIONARY. It felt all the more special because it wasn't supposed to be on the syllabus but my teacher managed to talk the english department into letting him teach this book instead of the Serious, Depressing & Literary book we were supposed to be reading.

Rereading it now, I don't love it as much as I did in high school, I think because I'm not comparing it to all the books one reads in high school english classes, and ultimately although this book is much closer than those to the kind of book I most like to read it's still not quite my jam. But it's still definitely a good book.

I am going on a 2.5 week overseas trip in about a month's time, and the most important part of any vacation is, of course, making sure you have packed enough books. Which means it's time to restock my e-reader. I don't buy many ebooks (because if I'm going to spend money I usually prefer to have a tangible copy to hang on to) so it is TO PROJECT GUTENBERG to replenish my ebook supply.

So I am looking for recommendations of books in the public domain that I would enjoy reading. There's a vast world of totally-enjoyable-yet-forgotten books out there and I don't know how best to trawl its depths so please let me know of any favourites of yours! (or, y'know, books that aren't your favourites but you think would be up my alley anyway.)

Or tbh I would also be in the market for recommendations of interesting historical romance ebooks for purchase at affordable prices, with the important caveat that there be zero rape (or threat of rape, or general rapey feel), and there needs to be a sense that the main characters actually like each other as people instead of just being hot for each other's bodies. Some actual groundedness in the historical setting would be nice too. I love a great deal of Courtney Milan's oeuvre, for a sense of the kind of thing I'm looking for here.
