Melissa Hart
“Rain in the Northwest is not the pounding, flashing performance enjoyed by the eastern part of the nation. Nor is it the festive annual soaking I'd been used to in Southern California. Rather, it's a seven-month drizzle that darkens the sky, mildews the bath towels, and propels those already prone to depression into the dim comforts of antihistamines and a flask.”
Melissa Hart, Wild Within: How Rescuing Owls Inspired a Family

Jane Smiley
“Many people, myself among them, feel better at the mere sight of a book.”
Jane Smiley, Thirteen Ways of Looking at the Novel

Anne Tyler
“I read so I can live more than one life in more than one place.”
Anne Tyler

“For me, literacy means freedom. For the individual and for society.”
LeVar Burton

“If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude.”
