Confessions of a Prairie Bitch by Alison Arngrim
"Loved it! If I had to sum up the book in one word it would be: Hilarious! It's not often that I laugh out loud when reading, but I did with these one several times. I almost spit out my water once! Even though she writes about some tough subjects,..." Read more of this review »

Barbara Kingsolver, The Poisonwood Bible

George Eliot
“It is a narrow mind which cannot look at a subject from various points of view.”
George Eliot, Middlemarch

Megan Whalen Turner
“I'll be your minister--"
"Of the exchequer? You'd rob me blind."
"I would never steal from you," he'd said hotly.
"Oh? Where is my tourmaline necklace? Where are my missing earrings?"
"That necklace was hideous. It was the only way to keep you from wearing it."
"My earrings?"
"What earrings?”
Megan Whalen Turner, The Queen of Attolia

Abraham Verghese
“The key to your happiness is to own your slippers, own who you are, own how you look, own your family, own the talents you have, and own the ones you don't. If you keep saying your slippers aren't yours, then you'll die searching, you'll die bitter, always feeling you were promised more. Not only our actions, but also our omissions, become our destiny.”
Abraham Verghese, Cutting for Stone

Ogden Nash
“Tonight’s December thirty-first,
Something is about to burst.
The clock is crouching, dark and small,
Like a time bomb in the hall.
Hark, it's midnight, children dear.
Duck! Here comes another year!”
Ogden Nash, Collected verse from 1929 on
