I share my home with my husband Steve and children, Maggie, and Dylan. I am a high school English teacher. I disagree a bit with the labels for Goodreads reviews. Here is my system:

5 stars = I loved it
4 stars = I liked it
3 stars = It was OK
2 stars = I didn't like it
1 star = I hated it

“So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

“Cut out all these exclamation points. An exclamation point is like laughing at your own joke.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald

“Great books write themselves, only bad books have to be written.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald

F. Scott Fitzgerald
“His heart beat faster and faster as Daisy’s white face came up to his own. He knew that when he kissed this girl, and forever wed his unutterable visions to her perishable breath, his mind would never romp again like the mind of God. So he waited, listening for a moment longer to the tuning fork that had been struck upon a star. Then he kissed her. At his lips’ touch she blossomed like a flower and the incarnation was complete.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Michael Moore I read Ross' the rest is Noise and liked it. I started buying the recommended music and the performances he recommends in the back. I learned a lot I didn't know. I also read his NYer columns. See you at GCTE.
