This was a fun, but sometimes maddening, book. This book explores the many different ways that readers read and make judgments on what they are reading. Frankly, I think some people are just nuts in how they approach a text but I'm sure they could sa ...more

*spoiler alert, sort of, because it's pretty easy to figure out what's going on fairly early, and I didn't give anything away but my comments about the characters might reveal something even earlier in the book, though I knew about halfway through th ...more

This book covers so many subjects--Art, creativity, regret, happiness, talent, and so on, but manages not to be too pretentious. Yeah, it's there but really this is a book about how to reconcile those things with the business of living (or if that's ...more

I'm not sure I'd ever want to see this play. I probably wouldn't have read it if not for a class. It's a little angry and message-y for my taste. However, it does some interesting things with character and that's fun to examine. If you have to. For a ...more

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

Ayn Rand
“A government is the most dangerous threat to man's rights: it holds a legal monopoly on the use of physical force against legally disarmed victims.”
Ayn Rand

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
