Site we love:  Letters of Note
It’s a wonderful web site, now also a new book:  Letters of Note gathers fascinating personal correspondence from well-known people. I love the beauty of an elegant letter composed from the heart, written, typed and mailed (not emailed! or tweeted!  or blogged, for that matter!) But it can be faxed —- as my husband sent me a series of clever faxes when we were dating which I still have.

Included:  a humble, grateful letter written by Albert Camus, after winning the Nobel Prize, to an old teacher; a deliriously, intensely passionate love letter from Henry Miller to Anais Nin; and my favorite— this charming, inspiring letter of advice from Kurt Vonnegut to a class of high school students.
