A lovely mother sent this video of her son Cannon reading Mine! She says it is the first book he’s able to read on his own. How lovely! Enjoy! Shutta

Shutta Shutta said: " Leaden writing. All telling, no showing. Hardly any dialogue. I feel like I'm treading in molassas trying to find any good bits. But I want to like it, due to the premise. Sorry, just can't recommend this at all, and I say that about very few books! "

Langston Hughes
“I loved my friend
He went away from me
There's nothing more to say
The poem ends,
Soft as it began-
I loved my friend.”
Langston Hughes

Daniel Wallace
“How do you know when it's me?"
"Your footsteps are apologetic?"
"What does that mean?"
She turned, smiling wiping her hands on her long, black skirt. "It doesn't mean anything," she said. "Everybody else here just does what they want to do and doesn't think twice about it. But you're never sure.”
Daniel Wallace, The Kings and Queens of Roam

“Have you ever heard a blindfolded octopus unwrap a cellophane-covered bathtub?”
