"I really don't understand why Essie has to be that samaritarian and selfless, when Dane crashes on her planet. She doesn't even sniff out other options . She gives and gives and asks only superficicial questions to bring light into Dane's mysterious treasure hunt first. Well, but on the other hand dwarf-abode-squatter Snowhite herself isn't known for best reaction to scheming people either." Jan 27, 2016 01:20AM

"Not feeling the love, sorry.

It's not bad or anything and the fact that our love interest has long hair, which I hate, doesn't have anything to do with it either ;-) but I’m just not feeling it.

I constantly got distracted while reading, which is n..." Read more of this review »

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
"Während ich die Grisha-Bücher für ganz nette YA-Fantasy hielt, hat Six of Crows mir bewiesen wie enorm Leigh Bardugo sich seitdem weiter entwickelt hat (oder wie viel sie damals zurückgehalten hat). Das Buch strotzt nur so vor Komplexität und Worl..." Read more of this review »

China Miéville
“It had become a chimney poking from a vertical universe of bookshelves.

There was motion below her. There were people on the shelves.

They clung to the edges of the cases and moved across them in expert scuttles. They wore ropes and hooks and carried picks on which they sometimes hung. Dangling from straps they carried notebooks, pens, magnifying glasses, ink pads, and stamps.

The men and women took books from the shelves as they went, checked their details, leaning against their ropes, replaced them, pulled out little pads and made notes, sometimes carried the books with them to another place and reshelved it there.

...

I'm Margarita Staples." She bowed in her harness. 'Extreme librarian. Bookaneer.”
China Miéville

Terry Pratchett
“The three rules of the Librarians of Time and Space are: 1) Silence; 2) Books must be returned no later than the last date shown; and 3) Do not interfere with the nature of causality.”
Terry Pratchett, Guards! Guards!

“In the nonstop tsunami of global information, librarians provide us with floaties and teach us to swim.”
Linton Weeks

Scott Douglas
“I am convinced that grandkids are inherently evil people who tell their grandparents to "just go to the library and open up an e-mail account - it's free and so simple.”
Scott Douglas, Quiet, Please: Dispatches From A Public Librarian
