"I'm convinced that things that have been loved and cherished acquire elegance and character."

And that's why I like Marie Kondo, despite her sometimes kooky ways.

Conversational descriptions and histories of various English castles; it would have been nice if the photos could have been custom shot for the book (rather than relying on Shutterstock), but I understand cost limitations. I noticed a few cases where ...more

Diane Setterfield
“They stood in silence, looking at floorboards and corners of cornices and other such insignificances, their curiosity and compassion at the ready. They were waiting so hard that when the door cracked and Bellman appeared, they jumped.”
Diane Setterfield, Bellman & Black

Elizabeth Peters
“A lady cannot be blamed if a master criminal takes a fancy to her.”
Elizabeth Peters, The Hippopotamus Pool

Naomi Novik
“If you don't want a man dead, don't bludgeon him over the head repeatedly.”
Naomi Novik, Uprooted

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

Diana Gabaldon
“Getting up once in the dark to go adventuring is a lark. Twice in two days smacks of masochism.”
Diana Gabaldon, Outlander
