The One & Only by Emily Giffin
"So to my own surprise I finished this book, and rather speedily, I might add. I gave it 4 stars, not because I liked it, but because as a person it made me question my own proclivities towards social norms. I'm completely thrilled I have a version..." Read more of this review »

Catherynne M. Valente
“She liked anything orange: leaves; some moons; marigolds; chrysanthemums; cheese; pumpkin, both in pie and out; orange juice; marmalade. Orange is bright and demanding. You can't ignore orange things. She once saw an orange parrot in the pet store and had never wanted anything so much in her life. She would have named it Halloween and fed it butterscotch. Her mother said butterscotch would make a bird sick and, besides, the dog would certainly eat it up. September never spoke to the dog again — on principle.”
Catherynne M. Valente, The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making

Douglas Adams
“The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don't.”
Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Terry Pratchett
“A marriage is always made up of two people who are prepared to swear that only the other one snores.”
Terry Pratchett, The Fifth Elephant

Garrison Keillor
“IMPORTANT Book reading is a solitary and sedentary pursuit, and those who do are cautioned that a book should be used as an integral part of a well-rounded life, including a daily regimen of rigorous physical exercise, rewarding personal relationships, and sensible low-fat diet. A book should not be used a as a substitute or an excuse.”
Garrison Keillor, The Book of Guys

Garrison Keillor
“God writes a lot of comedy... the trouble is, he's stuck with so many bad actors who don't know how to play funny.”
Garrison Keillor, Happy to Be Here
