Wow, this was really hard to put down. I felt for Simon because I recognized his worry-prone brain, and for Jake, the easily misunderstood introvert. There is a lot to discuss here about parenting, gender roles, and media.

"Inexcusably, I think about

I loved her first book, The Sky is Everywhere, so, so much, and I loved this one as well. I am 100% the kind of reader who eats up the flowery language, the strong imagery, the names of paintings, and the magical realism. The whole time, I was imagin ...more

Joshua Foer
“Monotony collapses time; novelty unfolds it. You can exercise daily and eat healthily and live a long life, while experiencing a short one. If you spend your life sitting in a cubicle and passing papers, one day is bound to blend unmemorably into the next - and disappear. That's why it's so important to change routines regularly, and take vacations to exotic locales, and have as many new experiences as possible that can serve to anchor our memories. Creating new memories stretches out psychological time, and lengthens our perception of our lives.”
Joshua Foer, Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything

Daniel Handler
“A library is like an island in the middle of a vast sea of ignorance, particularly if the library is very tall and the surrounding area has been flooded.”
Daniel Handler

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

“A book is the only place in which you can examine a fragile thought without breaking it, or explore an explosive idea without fear it will go off in your face. It is one of the few havens remaining where a man's mind can get both provocation and privacy.”
Edward P. Morgan

Neil Gaiman
“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
Neil Gaiman, Coraline
