"Sometimes I can’t go on vacation even though I want to. Reading is a great way to travel without ever leaving home, but I don’t always have enough time to start and finish a book. But there are other means of travel. Here are some amazing photo..." Read more of this blog post »

The Volunteer by Peadar Ó Guilín
" Full disclosure, as they say - Peadar is a friend of mine, but hey, if you're reading this review you're more than likely a friend of mine (and/or his) too. And if you are, I wouldn't steer you wrong. ;)

So when I say this final volume of the trilo... " Read more of this review »
Benjamin and 1 other person liked Maria E. Schneider's blog post: Leo the Convict
"We might have to rename Leo. He needs a criminal enterprise type name. Something that fits his mafia image. We’re thinking “Shorty” is about right. He likes to engage in criminal activity including murdering crickets and bringing the carcasses..." Read more of this blog post »
Shadow Prowler by Alexey Pehov
" This is the worst book I have ever encountered in my life, and this is from a man who read the first 11 Sword of Truth Novels and the first two Runelord books. There are no words to describe this thing.

Ursula K. Le Guin
“My mother was mad, but I was not. My father was old, but I was young. Like Spartan Helen, I caused a war. She caused hers by letting men who wanted her take her. I caused mine because I wouldn’t be given, wouldn’t be taken, but chose my man and my fate.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, Lavinia

Joe Abercrombie
“It always amazes me, how swiftly problems can be solved, once you start cutting things off people.”
Joe Abercrombie, Last Argument of Kings

“Ox, at an early age a Chinese genius gazes at the path that lies ahead and reaches for a wine jar," Master Li said. "Is it any wonder that our greatest men have lurched rather than walked across the landscape as they hiccuped their way into history?”
Barry Hughart, The Story of the Stone: A Master Li Novel

Franklin D. Roosevelt
“Books cannot be killed by fire. People die, but books never die. No man and no force can put thought in a concentration camp forever. No man and no force can take from the world the books that embody man’s eternal fight against tyranny. In this war, we know, books are weapons.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt

Tobias S. Buckell
“Just stories? Stories can build up an empire, or strike down a people. You can spell the most powerful spell, ease a friend’s hurt, or break an enemy. Stories make you believe.”
Tobias S. Buckell, Tides from the New Worlds
