“Because reading is one of the joys of life, and once you begin, you can't stop, and you've got so many stories to look forward to.”
Benedict Cumberbatch

Otis Y. Chandler

“Dear Frozen Yogurt,
You are the celery of desserts. Be ice cream or be nothing. Zero stars.”
Ron Swanson, It's Not the Size of the Boat: Embracing Life with a Micropenis

Jacqueline Patricks
“Why use profanity in real life and writing? Because sometimes 'darn it' just doesn't cut it.”
Jacqueline Patricks
