|Ernest, Hadley, & Bumby Hemingway|
Paris Without End was a wonderful piece of history to read and it read like a novel even though it was a non-fiction title. After reading this I went on to read A Moveable Feast since so many quotes were mentioned I had to go and read the entire book. I then had to read The Great Gatsby since Hemingway spent so much time with Fitzgerald and gave high praise for the book. So one book inspired me to read two others, but those will not be the last, as I have put the other authors on my list of books to read.
