Christine and 1 other person liked Monnie's review of Forever, Erma:
Forever, Erma by Erma Bombeck

Christine and 6 other people liked Monnie's review of The Killing Game:
The Killing Game by Nancy Bush
"Is anyone else old enough to remember the TV commercial for Prego pasta sauce claiming, "It's in there?" The reference, of course, is to all the ingredients a person (presumably a real Italian) would expect to find in homemade sauce. Well, that ta..." Read more of this review »

No pun intended."

Alan Bennett
“What she was finding also was how one book led to another, doors kept opening wherever she turned and the days weren't long enough for the reading she wanted to do.”
Alan Bennett, The Uncommon Reader

Kurt Vonnegut
“Those who believe in telekinetics, raise my hand.”
Kurt Vonnegut

“Unlooked-for kindness can cut deep as cruelties if they come at the wrong time.”
Lindsay Faye, Seven for a Secret

“Tell me, Doctor. Which is funnier: a goat or a duck?” “I beg your pardon?” “It’s a simple query. Goat or duck?” “Well…duck.” At that, Holmes dropped down as if dodging a projectile. A few seconds later, he popped up. “Did you see what I did there? I mistook your meaning of duck and turned it into a humorous situation.” “Holmes, have you had any sleep?” “No time. Awake or asleep, the duck misunderstanding is highly amusing.”
Colin Mochrie, Not Quite the Classics
