Laughing and crying and hilarious footnotes. John Connolly knows how to get it done.
Stone Mattress by Margaret Atwood
"What did I just step into? Hole-e-cow. Here’s a confession: STONE MATTRESS is my first Margaret Atwood reading experience. Allow me to pick my jaw off the floor and stop my tail wagging as I move on with this review. I’ll need your help at the end..." Read more of this review »
Crap Taxidermy by Kat Su
"

My dog is terrified of this book. He’s already nervous about getting older, but the arrival of CRAP TAXIDERMY and the movement of me pulling out the rubber gloves did nothing to cure his anxiety. Don’t worry, Buddy, I’m after that mouse in the hou..." Read more of this review »

A brief treatise on prejudice and how quickly these feelings can escalate in a small community. In this case it's English and Irish but it could translate to anywhere. Well written (she's one of my favorites) and tightly suspenseful for just over 100...more

“Let the wild rumpus start!”
Maurice Sendak, Where the Wild Things Are

Norton Juster
“So many things are possible just as long as you don't know they're impossible.”
Norton Juster, The Phantom Tollbooth

Craig Ferguson
“He was in awe of the thirst that people had for someone to tell them that everything was going to be all right. He marveled at the gullibility and vulnerability of his fellow humans. No wonder the churches called them sheep. They were woolly-headed pack animals being herded around for the benefit of whoever knew how to control the dogs.”
Craig Ferguson, Between the Bridge and the River

Alan Bennett
“A bookshelf is as particular to its owner as are his or her clothes; a personality is stamped on a library just as a shoe is shaped by the foot."

[Baffled at a Bookcase (London Review of Books, Vol. 33 No. 15, 28 July 2011)]”
Alan Bennett

Bill Hicks
“Here is my final point...About drugs, about alcohol, about pornography...What business is it of yours what I do, read, buy, see, or take into my body as long as I do not harm another human being on this planet? And for those who are having a little moral dilemma in your head about how to answer that question, I'll answer it for you. NONE of your fucking business. Take that to the bank, cash it, and go fucking on a vacation out of my life.”
Bill Hicks
