However, she dates the prince of England, but their relationship starts to distant after some problems and then she falls for his best friends brother.

I really enjoyed reading this book because it is extremely funny. The story kept me turning the pages one after another without stopping. I am sure readers who enjoy reading about funny relationships will enjoy this story very well.

So Many Books, So Little Time, by Sara Nelson, was an interesting book. It was a personal diary told by Sara Nelson herself that takes place in Vermont. It starts off with Sara Nelson's New Year's resolution to read all the books on her list. Se began to do so, but always got distracted and never found the time to read her books. As she finished a book she described it with a lot of deatail because she wants us to read the book. I liked this book but I found it a little frustrating at times. It was funny but too wise and a little too advanced for me. Sara Nelson made it funny yet understandable. The thing thing was that it taught me how to choose your next book. She explained all the positive thigns about reading, and how to always find the time to read. I recommend this book to people who never find the time to read because this book goes over the joys and frustration of reading. Sara Nelson accomplished her goal she mentioned because she sure got me more interested in reading.
