"First audiobook EVER but I'm totally loving it. Two more discs left. I'm just waiting for them to say that Adam didn't really take Death and is safe-ski." Jul 28, 2014 08:54PM

Welcome to the Dark House - an atmospheric, suspenseful YA horror that will have older readers reminiscing about the guilty pleasures of the past. For me, this book was immediately reminiscent of my pre-teen favorites penned by R.L. Stine and Christo...more

Kurt Vonnegut
“I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Player Piano

Neil Gaiman
“I've been making a list of the things they don't teach you at school. They don't teach you how to love somebody. They don't teach you how to be famous. They don't teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don't teach you how to walk away from someone you don't love any longer. They don't teach you how to know what's going on in someone else's mind. They don't teach you what to say to someone who's dying. They don't teach you anything worth knowing.”
Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones

Robert A. Heinlein
“Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.”
Robert A. Heinlein, Stranger in a Strange Land

Charles Bukowski
“For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can't readily accept the God formula, the big answers don't remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command nor faith a dictum. I am my own god. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.”
Charles Bukowski

Mark Z. Danielewski
“This is not for you.”
Mark Z. Danielewski, House of Leaves
