Island of the Lost by Joan Druett
"I checked this book out from the library today, started reading it after dinner, and could not put it down or go to bed until I finished it! I read a fair number of sailing non-fiction books and am no stranger to accounts of shipwrecks, but Druett..." Read more of this review »
Hush Hush by Laura Lippman
"I’m a fan of Laura Lippman’s crime novels and I was very pleased to see the return of Tess Monaghan in this story – one of my favourite literary heroines, I know I’m in for a good read when she’s involved and I was right.

In this story, she is relu..." Read more of this review »

Vandana Shiva
“Nature shrinks as capital grows. The growth of the market cannot solve the very crisis it creates.”
Vandana Shiva, Soil Not Oil: Environmental Justice in an Age of Climate Crisis

Albert Einstein
“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
Albert Einstein

C. JoyBell C.
“You've got this life and while you've got it, you'd better kiss like you only have one moment, try to hold someone's hand like you will never get another chance to, look into people's eyes like they're the last you'll ever see, watch someone sleeping like there's no time left, jump if you feel like jumping, run if you feel like running, play music in your head when there is none, and eat cake like it's the only one left in the world!”
C. JoyBell C.

Jasper Fforde, The Well of Lost Plots
