Before After by Anne-Margot Ramstein

Very clever book with page turns that often make you chuckle. My favorite illustration was the one with the little spider, because he has a very subtle distressed expression on his face.

Goose by Laura Wall

"Goose," as a book, is a bit of an odd duck. I love the illustration on the cover, and it totally made me want to read the book. The illustrations are cute enough, but it has a bit of an odd message. Sophie is lonely and wants a friend (inexplicably, ...more

“The world is full of assholes. What are you doing to make sure you're not one of them?”
A.S. King, Everybody Sees the Ants

Walter Dean Myers
“We’re suggesting that [kids are] missing something if they don’t read but, actually, we’re condemning kids to a lesser life. If you had a sick patient, you would not try to entice them to take their medicine. You would tell them, ‘Take this or you’re going to die.’ We need to tell kids flat out: reading is not optional.”
Walter Dean Myers

Sharon Dogar
“I can't imagine children coming out of me," she says suddenly, "only stories.”
Sharon Dogar

Rebecca Makkai
“I believed that books might save him because I knew they had so far, and because I knew the people books had saved. They were college professors and actors and scientists and poets. They got to college and sat on dorm floors drinking coffee, amazed they'd finally found their soul mates. They always dressed a little out of season. Their names were enshrined on the pink cards in the pockets of all the forgotten hardbacks in every library basement in America. If the librarians were lazy enough or nostalgic enough or smart enough, those names would stay there forever.”
Rebecca Makkai, The Borrower

Charlaine Harris
“Why was it librarians had such a prim image? With all the information available in books right there at their fingertips, librarians could be the best-informed people around. About anything.”
Charlaine Harris, Three Bedrooms, One Corpse
