I have realized this much about my reading habits. Books written in the thriller or detective genre act as my refresher between picking up classics or between alternating between difficult but extremely well written book. So, a soon as I completed Cl ...more

The Firm is a much celebrated book. And the popularity of John Grisham is ubiquitous. So, when I delved into this book, it was with unhinged expectations and insatiable curiosity. The book started off well, too well perhaps as I raced through the fir ...more

I would have rather waited a day to assimilate the insanely ambitious plot, the lofty vocabulary prowess, the rather concocted world building skills of David Mitchell, but procrastination is my shadow. I would rather risk writing an incredibly amateu ...more

Ishmael Reed
“No one says a novel has to be one thing. It can be anything it wants to be, a vaudeville show, the six o’clock news, the mumblings of wild men saddled by demons.”
Ishmael Reed, Yellow Back Radio Broke-Down

D.H. Lawrence
“It's no good trying to get rid of your own aloneness. You've got to stick to it all your life. Only at times, at times, the gap will be filled in. At times! But you have to wait for the times. Accept your own aloneness and stick to it, all your life. And then accept the times when the gap is filled in, when they come. But they've got to come. You can't force them.”
D.H. Lawrence, Lady Chatterley's Lover

Saul Bellow
“You never have to change anything you got up in the middle of the night to write.”
Saul Bellow

Sherrilyn Kenyon
“Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss other people. Life's too short to worry about what other people do or don't do. Tend your own backyard, not theirs, because yours is the one you have to live in.”
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Infamous

Benjamin Franklin Wade
“Go to heaven for the climate and hell for the company.”
Benjamin Franklin Wade
