The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce

Definitely a thought provoking book if slow at some points. I think it is one of those novels that stays with you and grows on you with distance. Sort of like Harold's journey, sometimes the further from something we get the more we understand it. Th ...more

When I read reviews of this book I kept seeing people say that it was very funny and very disturbing, and I thought it couldn't possibly be both. It was. I had nightmares about this book- it is an exceptional horror novel. It made me think long after ...more

Sue Monk Kidd
“I marvel at how good I was before I met him, how I lived molded to the smallest space possible, my days the size of little beads that passed without passion through my fingers. So few people know what they're capable of. At forty-two I'd never done anything that took my own breath away, and I suppose now that was part of the problem - my chronic inability to astonish myself.”
Sue Monk Kidd, The Mermaid Chair

Virginia Woolf
“For most of history, Anonymous was a woman.”
Virginia Woolf

Oscar Wilde
“Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault. Those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated. For these there is hope. They are the elect to whom beautiful things mean only Beauty. There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

Dr. Seuss
“You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”
Dr. Seuss

Ray Bradbury
“Do you know that books smell like nutmeg or some spice from a foreign land? I loved to smell them when I was a boy. Lord, there were a lot of lovely books once, before we let them go.”
Ray Bradbury
