" I bought this 1919 edition at an antique store in Boothbay Harbour, ME. It's on my shelf for life even if I never finish it!

The Lady of the Lake by Walter Scott
" The only thing i read on my Romantic Literature MA that i gave a crap about. If you want Romantic poetry that defies Wordsworth, and his ever-so-tedious ilk, then this is the guy. Rock on Scotland, the progenitor of pissing people off.

Before I go into what I thought of this book, I just want to say that none of my opinions are based on the fact that JK Rowling wrote it. I'm reviewing it based on its merits alone, as a thrilling new mystery novel by the illusive author Robert Galbr...more

Didn't finish.

This book is aimed at anyone who wants to learn about the often crazy ways that scientists made genetic discoveries.

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
