I am not ashamed to admit it, I LOVE audio books. Actually, I’ll buy them over paperbacks a good percentage of the time. They’re convenient, you don’t need to put them down to do mundane chores, and often the narrator brings something special to the story. That said, the downside is that audiobooks are expensive! In a world where you can often get great books for free, great audiobooks usually...

“I don’t agree. The morning fog makes the graveyard beautiful, soft and sad as a voice humming a lullaby, but I don’t tell her what I think. She’d call me a weirdo.
- Raven Smith”
Rita Stradling, The Deception Dance

“It’s almost as if all the sleazy men in this country attended the same seminar, where they learned that all American women go to Italy to sleep with them. The teacher at the seminar told them, “You don’t need to learn English to seduce an American woman, you only need to learn one word: ‘bella.’ If you say it, their belts will snap and pants fall from their hips.If I ever find that seminar teacher, I’m going to kick him in the shin.”
Rita Stradling

“I’m tied up, gagged and about to be bludgeoned to death by a lawn ornament. Jeez, that’s depressing.
- Raven Smith”
Rita Stradling, The Deception Dance

“Don't sweat the petty things and don't pet the sweaty things.”
George Carlin

“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”
William W. Purkey

“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.”
Albert Einstein

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
Oscar Wilde

“You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”
Dr. Seuss
