Why We Broke Up Project

Have you heard of Why We Broke Up? It's the latest book from Daniel Handler and Maira Kalman, and it is the story of why Min Green and Ed Slaterton broke up. It's told with some pretty cool pictures (by Kalman), and is a pretty funny/bittersweet book thus far.

To celebrate the release on December 27th, Little, Brown is sponsoring the Why We Broke Up project. Share your break-up story, heal your heart.


I submitted one, and it was kinda fun when Daniel Handler responded to it on the tumblr. I love his humor, and these stories are funny, if not a little sad sometimes. Misery enjoys company after all...

Daniel Handler=Lemony Snicket. I'm checking out this website, and WOW, and I can't wait to read the book, and what an idea to compile these stories, and.... I'm just floored.

I hadn't actually heard of this project before, but yup--misery does love company! Man, my worst break up story involved the moving out of the *country.* Ugh.

But this definitely looks like a fun read!
