I don't even know what to say. I could go into how I felt like I was reading about myself, which doesn't make a whole lot of sense when I consider how different my life is from the author's, which makes it really hard to explain, so I won't.

Now here's the Neil Gaiman I know and love! He wrote a delightfully weird little tale about delightfully weird little characters without all that unpleasantness I found in American Gods. I think I will pretend that book fell through the cracks and wh...more

I like finding good books in unexpected places. Although, I liked Shopgirl, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised to like another Steve Martin book. Not only did I like the story (a kind of modern day The Age of Innocence), I also learned a little some...more

Ray Bradbury
“I don't believe in being serious about anything. I think life is too serious to be taken seriously."

[Writer’s Digest Interview (Robert Jacobs, Writer’s Digest, February 1976)]”
Ray Bradbury

John Steinbeck
“But the Hebrew word, the word timshel—‘Thou mayest’— that gives a choice. It might be the most important word in the world. That says the way is open. That throws it right back on a man. For if ‘Thou mayest’—it is also true that ‘Thou mayest not.”
John Steinbeck, East of Eden

John Steinbeck
“We all have that heritage, no matter what old land our fathers left. All colors and blends of Americans have somewhat the same tendencies. It's a breed - selected out by accident. And so we're overbrave and overfearful - we're kind and cruel as children. We're overfriendly and at the same time frightened of strangers. We boast and are impressed. We're oversentimental and realistic. We are mundane and materialistic - and do you know of any other nation that acts for ideals? We eat too much. We have no taste, no sense of proportion. We throw our energy about like waste. In the old lands they say of us that we go from barbarism to decadence without an intervening culture. Can it be that our critics have not the key or the language of our culture.”
John Steinbeck, East of Eden

Ray Bradbury
“It takes writing a billion bad words before you get to the good ones.”
Ray Bradbury

Mark Twain
“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”
Mark Twain
