Cheri and 1 other person liked Steven's review of Uncle John's Beer-Topia:
Uncle John's Beer-Topia by Bathroom Readers' Institute
"Fun, light read about beer and random factoids about its history, how to make it, what's popular where, when, and why, and so forth. A good book to pick up and put down over and over again (which is what its authors, the Bathroom Readers' Institut..." Read more of this review »

The Dog Master by W. Bruce Cameron
"I suppose it is a bit ridiculous for me to review a novel that I wrote, but I did, in the process, read the thing, and I have a few thoughts.

First, the author seems to be losing his hair. In compensation, he's growing it longer and sort of swirlin..." Read more of this review »

“We read books to find out who we are. What other people, real or imaginary, do and think and feel... is an essential guide to our understanding of what we ourselves are and may become.”

Peter Heller
“He's getting old. I don't count the years. I don't multiply by seven. They bred dogs for everything else, even diving for fish, why didn't they breed them to live longer, to live as long as a man?”
Peter Heller, The Dog Stars

“Atara liked to pray with Mila. She could tell that in Mila’s prayer, the messiah’s coming was not the glory of the Temple rebuilt but a kitchen with Mila’s mother in it, a bedtime with the story Mila’s father had not finished telling her.”
Anouk Markovitz

Robin Sloan
“After that, the book will fade, the way all books fade in your mind. But I hope you will remember this:
A man walking fast down a dark lonely street. Quick steps and hard breathing, all wonder and need. A bell above a door and the tinkle it makes. A clerk and a ladder and warm golden light, and then: the right book exactly, at exactly the right time.”
Robin Sloan, Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore

Barbara Kingsolver
“As long as we won't commit to knowing everything, the presumption is we know nothing...he did not claim that God moves in mysterious ways. Instead he seemed to believe, as she did, though they never could have discussed it, that everything else is in motion while God does not move at all. God sits still, perfectly at rest, the silver dollar at the bottom of the well, the question.”
Barbara Kingsolver, Flight Behavior

Donal Ryan
“I wish to God I could talk to her the way she wants me to, besides forever making her guess what I’m thinking. Why can’t I find the words?”
Donal Ryan, The Spinning Heart
