This kept me up much too late! I just couldn't put it down! Even though some of the violence was completely horrifying, I still wanted to continue reading. I read even through all the notes at the end. What an amazing story. Now sometime I'll have to ...more

What a sweet and interesting story! I expected more of an ending, but overall I really enjoyed this. I would have LOVED this as a child. My one question while I was reading is how did the mermaid get around so easily on land?

This was a Newbery Honor

Where Do Balloons Go? by Jamie Lee Curtis
"I am usually skeptical about actors who write books - and I was with this book too when I picked it up in the bookstore. But it is a lovely story especially when I saw an interview with Ms. Curtis who she said that she wrote the book to help her c..." Read more of this review »

What a fun idea for a picture book! The librarian in me first thought, "Oh no! Some kid has been coloring all over this book!" :) I especially loved the picture on the back of Chris Van Allsburg and who I presume is his daughter, Sophia. She is weari ...more

I recently read The Boy Who Dared by Susan Campbell Bartoletti. Compared to that, this is just a pale, striped, sad story that doesn't really mean anything. I guess it isn't fair to compare a true story to a "fable," but they are both about the same ...more

It's been so long since I've read a John Grisham mystery! (Although I did enjoy revisiting Skipping Christmas on audio this past Christmas.) This was an enjoyable read, but I agree with others that it wasn't up to Grisham's usual standard. Reading th ...more

The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin
“Sometimes books don't find us until the right time.”

Christopher Morley
“I think reading a good book makes one modest. When you see the marvelous insight into human nature which a truly great book shows, it is bound to make you feel small--like looking at the Big Dipper on a clear night, or seeing the winter sunrise when you go out to collect the morning eggs. And anything that makes you feel small is mighty good for you.”
Christopher Morley, Parnassus on Wheels

Jim Rohn
“The things that change your life are: the people you meet, the classes you take, and the books you read.”
Jim Rohn

Walter Tevis
“I feel free and strong. If I were not a reader of books I could not feel this way.”
Walter Tevis

Fay Weldon
“Books fashion nets to sustain and support the reader as he falls helplessly through the chaos of his own existence.”
Fay Weldon

Leigh Hunt
“I entrench myself in books equally against sorrow and the weather.”
Leigh Hunt
