Hmmm...not quite for me. I like the color, flair, glitter, and lights in many of these examples, but as is often the case, it's too "more is more" for my taste. I'm not familiar with this show, but the book seems largely about selling Junk Gypsy as a ...more

A hefty, bright collection of picture-book illustrations from around the world. I'd never heard of this until Amazon suggested I might like it, so, thanks, algorithm. You've got me pegged.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling

The plotting in this one is just head-spinning -- more so in the book than the movie. The length of the conversation that comprises the "big reveal" chapter is evidence of that. I'm starting to appreciate how unflinching J.K. Rowling is in making a c ...more

“You have to be grateful whenever you get to someplace safe and okay, even if it turns out it wasn’t quite where you were heading. The light you see when people are in the tunnel of deep trouble is domestic flashes of recognition and kitchen comforts, not Blake’s radiance, which would be my preference.”
Anne Lamott, Small Victories: Spotting Improbable Moments of Grace

Anne Lamott
“I learned that opening myself to my own love and to life’s tough loveliness not only was the most delicious, amazing thing on earth but also was quantum. It would radiate out to a cold, hungry world. Beautiful moments heal, as do real cocoa, Pete Seeger, a walk on old fire roads.”
Anne Lamott, Small Victories: Spotting Improbable Moments of Grace

M.T. Anderson
“We got some that were plain and some cinnamon. I liked the cinnamon better. Violet said that it was important to start with the plain, so that the cinnamon seemed more like a change. She said she had a theory that everything was better if you delayed it. She had this whole thing about self-control, okay, and the importance of self-control.”
M.T. Anderson, Feed

Anne Lamott
“They say we are punished not for the sin but by the sin, and I began to feel punished by my unwillingness to forgive.”
Anne Lamott, Small Victories: Spotting Improbable Moments of Grace

Anne Lamott
“Redefinition is a nightmare—we think we’ve arrived, in our nice Pottery Barn boxes, and that this or that is true. Then something happens that totally sucks, and we are in a new box, and it is like changing into clothes that don’t fit, that we hate. Yet the essence remains. Essence is malleable, fluid. Everything we lose is Buddhist truth—one more thing that you don’t have to grab with your death grip, and protect from theft or decay. It’s gone. We can mourn it, but we don’t have to get down in the grave with it.”
