Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens.Carlos Ruiz Zafón

Well, I've gone and done it again. I've started a series that almost all of my GR friends like and an author that I was afraid I would like and guess what? I liked it. Both the book and the author. Now I have another series and another author that I...more

Like so many other readers, I was so enamored with the Riyria Revelations (all 6 novels) that I didn’t want it to end. Of course, the ending was pretty much perfect though so I didn’t want that to be ruined by sequels. We’ve all loved TV series that...more

“Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens.”
Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind

Arthur C. Clarke
“Two possibilities exist: either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying.”
Arthur C. Clarke

Brandon Sanderson
“Elend smiled. "Oh, come on. You have to admit that you're unusual, Vin. You're like some strange mixture of a noblewoman, a street urchin, and a cat. Plus, you've mangaged - in our short three years together - to kill not only my god, but my father, my brother, and my fiancée. That's kind of like a homicidal hat trick.”
Brandon Sanderson, The Hero of Ages

John Dunning
“The camera would miss it all. A magnificent picture is never worth a thousand perfect words. Ansel Adams can be a great artist, but he can never be Shakespeare. His tools are too literal.”
John Dunning, The Bookman's Wake

A.J. Jacobs
“My reading list grows exponentially. Every time I read a book, it'll mention three other books I feel I have to read. It's like a particularly relentless series of pop-up ads.”
A.J. Jacobs, The Year of Living Biblically: One Man's Humble Quest to Follow the Bible as Literally as Possible
