I enjoyed it. As a romance, it was more substantial in story and not too fixated on, or terribly graphic, on the sex scenes (all things in moderation, and all that, right?). I guess I land in the camp of those who feel you can only plug in a light so ...more

This one seems hard to review without saying too much - the story doesn't unfold so much as it is like those cellophane anatomy illustrations in encyclopedias back in the day, where each page you turned added another layer till you eventually saw the ...more

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling
“One friend with whom you have a lot in common is better than three with whom you struggle to find things to talk about.”
Mindy Kaling
C is 70% done with The Escape: Conversation feels a bit stilted and strange, but I like that the characters have issues to work out and they're determined to see those issues through with or without someone else in their lives (and indeed, marriage is not necessarily the goal).

Garrison Keillor
“A book is a gift you can open again and again.”

Terry Pratchett
“The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.”
Terry Pratchett, Diggers

Albert Einstein
“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
Albert Einstein

Terry Pratchett
“It's not worth doing something unless someone, somewhere, would much rather you weren't doing it.”
Terry Pratchett

Bryce Courtenay
“Sometimes the slightest things change the directions of our lives, the merest breath of a circumstance, a random moment that connects like a meteorite striking the earth. Lives have swiveled and changed direction on the strength of a chance remark.”
Bryce Courtenay
