"So far I've bought herodotus and an abridged copy of description de l'egypte, reading non-fiction is expensive, I'd like a couple more too but sadly I cannot read French. I'd like to know French... Maybe I should buy a book on French oh god somebody help me" Apr 28, 2015 05:08AM

I am now sad and lost. This series consumed a couple of weeks of reading and now I don't know where to go with myself. It was good, the end was good, my expectations were fulfilled and there was no great surprises, but it was still good.

I think I'll slog my way through this, just out of curiosity.

Interesting ideas but it couldn't hold my attention at all, which is odd because I've loved all his other books. Putting this off to one side for now and maybe I'll try again one day.

Robert Frost

Louis L'Amour
“Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow until the faucet is turned on.”
Louis L'Amour

Margaret Mitchell
“Oh, he was detestable! She swung round on her heel and marched into the house. She
grabbed hold of the door to shut it with a bang, but the hook which held it open was too
heavy for her. She struggled with it, panting.
"May I help you?" he asked.
Feeling that she would burst a blood vessel if she stayed another minute, she stormed
up the stairs. And as she reached the upper floor, she heard him obligingly slam the door
for her.”
Margaret Mitchell

Nikolai Gogol
“The longer and more carefully we look at a funny story, the sadder it becomes.”
Nikolai Gogol

Victor Hugo
“Table talk and Lovers' talk equally elude the grasp; Lovers' Talk is clouds, Table Talk is smoke."

Les Miserables”
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
