Letters of Note: Your New Biggest Addiction

For the past two days since I discovered Letters of Note, I have been glued to the computer, pausing only to eat, sleep, earn my meager pittance as a freelancer and email snippets of these amazing letters to loved ones.

The site is curated by a freelance writer who scours for interesting postcards, letters and other written ephemera from interesting people or on interesting subjects.

Check out:

A letter from JD Salinger to a producer explaining his refusal to sell the film or stage rights to his novel.

An amazing letter from a father to his little daughter while he is away fighting in WWII

A hilarious, tongue in cheek letter from Al Franken to John Ashcroft

And many more.  Kiss productivity  at your job goodbye.

Ashley Friedman - Cornerstore Correspondent

Like most kids, Ashley grew up in New Jersey. Unlike most kids the Friedman's televison set acted as a third parent, imbuing young Ashley with the stern moral values of Claire Huxtable, the dramatic tendencies of Brenda Walsh and the earnest hopefulness of the blond kid on Silver Spoons. After graduating from Sarah Lawrence Ashley made her way to the Park Slope area of Brooklyn where she can currently be found reading foreign fashion magazines, scouring ebay for vintage heels, eating out in restaurants and otherwise stretching her meager income as far as it will go in NYC.
