BUT if you have a great book to recommend - even if it's NOT pre-destined for the screen, I'd love your suggestions!

  2. I'm excited to see it! I'm taking my time with the book; loving it so. Of course it's hard not to picture Carey Mulligan as Cathy and Keira Knightly as Ruth but it seems like perfect casting so that's okay with me!
