Listening to the audio book this time around. I love it all of course but at the end of the day, it's:
Oh, Faramir! (bats eyes and swoons)

More of a 2.5. Typical cozy mystery but I kept being thrown by the fact that while it read very much like an Agatha Christie type of mystery from the 1930's, every couple of pages there was some really coarse language. I found it very jarring. The pl ...more

Terry Pratchett
“A good bookshop is just a genteel Black Hole that knows how to read.”
Terry Pratchett, Guards! Guards!

Gustave Flaubert
“Do not read, as children do, to amuse yourself, or like the ambitious, for the purpose of instruction. No, read in order to live.”
Gustave Flaubert

Oscar Wilde
“It is what you read when you don't have to that determines what you will be when you can't help it.”
Oscar Wilde

Joyce Carol Oates
“Reading is the sole means by which we slip, involuntarily, often helplessly, into another's skin, another's voice, another's soul.”
Joyce Carol Oates

Kurt Vonnegut
“And on the subject of burning books: I want to congratulate librarians, not famous for their physical strength or their powerful political connections or their great wealth, who, all over this country, have staunchly resisted anti-democratic bullies who have tried to remove certain books from their shelves, and have refused to reveal to thought police the names of persons who have checked out those titles.

So the America I loved still exists, if not in the White House or the Supreme Court or the Senate or the House of Representatives or the media. The America I love still exists at the front desks of our public libraries.”
Kurt Vonnegut, A Man Without a Country
