Dick by Philip K. Dick

I read this to acquaint myself with Mr.Dick, and I'm so glad I have. He is a genius, and is now, I'd definitely say, one of my favorite authors. Read him if you can!

Plan B by Anne Lamott
“I have a lot of faith. But I am also afraid a lot, and have no real certainty about anything. I remembered something Father Tom had told me--that the opposite of faith is not doubt, but certainty. Certainty is missing the point entirely. Faith includes noticing the mess, the emptiness and discomfort, and letting it be there until some light returns.”

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
“Without pain, how could we know joy?' This is an old argument in the field of thinking about suffering and its stupidity and lack of sophistication could be plumbed for centuries but suffice it to say that the existence of broccoli does not, in any way, affect the taste of chocolate.”

I didn't expect to like it as much as I did. It's written with a lot of heart and romance, for the written word, for humanity and for love itself. I admire all the insight this novel has into the meaning of life, which for me was especially acknowled ...more

Not meant to be one of his most notable books, but still an encouraging and valuable glimpse into the mind of such a great, prolific writer. As someone who likes to write, and started running (before NYC became a arctic wasteland), I was very inspire ...more

Super Sad True Love Story by Gary Shteyngart

Shteygart has good style, but the future he depicted was not that great at covering up the lackluster plot. Sorry. I read it to the end for it's endearing characters and good writing style.

Chronic City by Jonathan Lethem
Rate this book
Clear rating
It was classic Lethem, with wonderful imagery and intelligent dialogue and concepts, but the plot fell a little flat at the end. It was pessimistic in a way you hope a novel based in real life doesn't succumb to, but beautiful nonetheless.

“Some people have a way with words, and other people...oh, uh, not have way.”

“It is better to remain silent at the risk of being thought a fool, than to talk and remove all doubt of it.”

Myla Goldberg
“As much as I admire and value intellectualism and experimentation, I've discovered that unless a book has a throbbing heart as well as a sexy brain, I feel like the story is a specimen in a sealed glass jar and not a living, breathing creature I want to take by the hand and talk to for hours on end.”

We're fans of Rowling's series because we know that it is more than just a children's fantasy story.
