Marie Marie said: " Another great addition to the pop-science Freakonomics-style books. Honestly, I just love this stuff. There are things you have to take with a grain of salt, but it does give you a lot to think about. (Also, download Dan Ariely's lecture from the Lon ...more"

A bit boring, really. Rich folks behaving like children, yawn.

Engaging, witty, easy-to-read: I still want to take Jane aside and teach her how to properly plan an overseas adventure. (Hint: figure out how you're going to get from the airport to your destination BEFORE you arrive.)

Beautiful, thoughtful, not as disturbing as I was afraid of but still deliciously creepy. And a story about Shadow!!

I feel a bit short-changed that we don't get much Mal/Inara, but still - very satisfying, funny, and thrilling in all the right places.

Susan Hill
“Books help to form us. If you cut me open, you will find volume after volume, page after page, the contents of every one I have ever read, somehow transmuted and transformed into me. Alice in Wonderland. the Magic Faraway Tree. The Hound of the Baskervilles. The Book of Job. Bleak House. Wuthering Heights. The Complete Poems of W H Auden. The Tale of Mr Tod. Howard''s End. What a strange person I must be. But if the books I have read have helped to form me, then probably nobody else who ever lived has read exactly the same books, all the same books and only the same books as me. So just as my genes and the soul within me make me uniquely me, so I am the unique sum of the books I have read. I am my literary DNA.”
Susan Hill, Howards End Is on the Landing: A Year of Reading from Home

“I can dream, though - can't I, for myself? Even if you have not the imagination or the soul?”
Barbara Scrupski, Ruslan: A Novel of Russia

John Green
“…because nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff… Nerds are allowed to love stuff, like jump-up-and-down-in-the-chair-can’t-control-yourself love it. Hank, when people call people nerds, mostly what they’re saying is ‘you like stuff.’ Which is just not a good insult at all. Like, ‘you are too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness’.”
John Green

“Being a writer of fiction isn't like being a compulsive liar, honestly.”
