My kids and I love how each book in this series is related but the focus shifts to the adventures of a minor character from the previous book. This book focuses on Dido, a poor street smart girl who REALLY shines has a hilarious and brilliant protago ...more

The first story in this collection was so intense for me I stopped reading it five times because I didn't want to know how it ended, and ended up spacing out a 30 page story for three days. And it still worked and was still beautiful and horrible as ...more

I read this slowly, but it is typically the kind of book I might devour in two days. (I've been busy.) The entire story is transcripts of interviews and diary entries which I think is a fantastic suspense-filled way to tell a story. This is fabulous ...more

George Eliot
“But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.”
George Eliot, Middlemarch

Maureen Corrigan
“It's not that I don't like people. It's just that when I'm in the company of others - even my nearest and dearest - there always comes a moment when I'd rather be reading a book.”
Maureen Corrigan, Leave Me Alone, I'm Reading: Finding and Losing Myself in Books

Zora Neale Hurston
“Janie looked down on him and felt a self-crushing love. So her soul crawled out from its hiding place.”
Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God

C.S. Lewis
“Are you not thirsty?" said the Lion.
"I am dying of thirst," said Jill.
"Then drink," said the Lion.
"May I — could I — would you mind going away while I do?" said Jill.
The Lion answered this only by a look and a very low growl. And as Jill gazed at its motionless bulk, she realized that she might as well have asked the whole mountain to move aside for her convenience.
The delicious rippling noise of the stream was driving her nearly frantic.
"Will you promise not to — do anything to me, if I do come?" said Jill.
"I make no promise," said the Lion.
Jill was so thirsty now that, without noticing it, she had come a step nearer.
"Do you eat girls?" she said.
"I have swallowed up girls and boys, women and men, kings and emperors, cities and realms," said the Lion. It didn't say this as if it were boasting, nor as if it were sorry, nor as if it were angry. It just said it.
"I daren't come and drink," said Jill.
"Then you will die of thirst," said the Lion.
"Oh dear!" said Jill, coming another step nearer. "I suppose I must go and look for another stream then."
"There is no other stream," said the Lion.”
C.S. Lewis, The Silver Chair
