Detroit by Charlie LeDuff
Rate this book

"Detroit: An American Autopsy" is aptly named. The Detroit of yesteryear is dead, dead, dead (as are many places in the United States that once thrived). Hopefully, the Detroit that LeDuff chronicles in this book is dead as well, or at least on its w ...more

Longbourn by Jo Baker

I greatly enjoyed Ms. Baker's novel. I cared about her Sarah and James, and found myself rooting for them almost from the beginning. As an Austen-junkie, one thing I had to do very early in the book was suspend my typical perception of the Pride and ...more

I didn't read "The Red Tent" when it was first published (1997) - mainly because I was busy having babies at the time (ironic given the subject matter in the book) and had virtually no time for pleasure reading.
But better late than never, I always sa

Read it in about 36 hours, in between work and other necessary tasks- like sleeping. This book is a page turner. Very intense. I'm more in love with Roarke than ever, and I didn't think that was possible. I don't think I would enjoy the In Death seri ...more

“Things don't go wrong and break your heart so you can become bitter and give up. They happen to break you down and build you up so you can be all that you were intended to be.”
Charles Jones, Life Is Tremendous

Mark Twain

Samuel Johnson
“Few things are impossible to diligence and skill. Great works are performed not by strength, but by perseverance.”
Samuel Johnson

“The Paradoxical Commandments

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.”
Kent M. Keith, The Silent Revolution: Dynamic Leadership in the Student Council

Rainer Maria Rilke
“Find out the reason that commands you to write; see whether it has spread its roots into the very depth of your heart; confess to yourself you would have to die if you were forbidden to write.”
