How Adam Smith Can Change Your Life by Russ Roberts
"This book is the closest I've ever encountered to a beach read about the work of Adam Smith. Roberts explores how Smith's other, lesser known book, The Theory of Moral Sentiments, applies the same perspective as the Wealth of Nations on how human..." Read more of this review »
Saints of the Shadow Bible by Ian Rankin
"Let us count the ways that Ian Rankin’s antisocial Scottish police detective, John Rebus, is worth following, book after book (Saints of the Shadow Bible is the 19th in the Rebus series):

He is delightfully contrarian, always finding openings to ne..." Read more of this review »
Kathejo and 8 other people liked James Thane's review of Birthdays for the Dead:
Birthdays for the Dead by Stuart MacBride
"This is a relentlessly dark book featuring a very flawed protagonist. A serial killer is stalking twelve-year-old girls in Scotland. He abducts the children a few days before their thirteenth birthdays, then tortures them over a period of days, ki..." Read more of this review »
Treachery by S.J. Parris
"Honest, by the numbers, historical fiction.

Books. Cats. Life is Good.
“Books. Cats. Life is Good.”
Edward Gorey

Susanna Clarke
“Houses, like people, are apt to become rather eccentric if left too much on their own; this house was the architectural equivalent of an old gentleman in a worn dressing-gown and torn slippers, who got up and went to bed at odd times of day, and who kept up a continual conversation with friends no one else could see.”
Susanna Clarke, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell

Shirley Jackson
“Fate intervened. Some of us, that day, she led inexorably through the gates of death. Some of us, innocent and unsuspecting, took, unwillingly, that one last step to oblivion. Some of us took very little sugar.”
Shirley Jackson, We Have Always Lived in the Castle

Marguerite Duras
“Our mothers always remain the strangest, craziest people we've ever met.”
Marguerite Duras

Irwin Shaw
“There are too many books I haven’t read, too many places I haven’t seen, too many memories I haven’t kept long enough.”
Irwin Shaw
