Giovanna's Recent Updates

Giovanna is now following Judith Delahunt's reviews

This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force. Dorothy Parker
Giovanna and 1 other person liked Grace's status update
Grace
Grace is on page 194 of 312 of Sense and Sensibility: I forgot how great these characters are. I remember Elinor as sort of proper and boring, but likeable; on this reading, however, she seems downright witty and subjective. There are plenty of people she despises, she's just quiet about it. Jane Austen is a genius.
Dillwynia Peter
Dillwynia Peter is on page 310 of 492 of History of the Expedition Under the Command of Lewis and Clark, Vol.1: I just passed the Mussellshell River mouth in Montana. I love tracing the journey via Google Earth after each reading session.

Hugh Laurie
“It's a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you're ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.”
Hugh Laurie

Dorothy Parker
“This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force.”
