When he comes out, the world has been destroyed by a nuclear blast, and everyone is dead. He finds […]

Vinegar Girl by Anne Tyler

A modern-day retelling of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew by Anne Tyler. Sounds like a win-win. Except that the play was never my favorite. It was too contrived for my taste - you could tell what was coming from the beginning. "Bad girl gets taken ...more

Extraordinary book. It's why I wish everyone wouldn't give every book they read 5 stars, because then there's no room for the truly excellent 5-star books. I found this book in a little Free Library, which adds to the fun of finding it.

Harriet Beecher Stowe
“The longest way must have its close - the gloomiest night will wear on to a morning.”
Harriet Beecher Stowe, Uncle Tom's Cabin

Cornelia Funke
“Stories never really end...even if the books like to pretend they do. Stories always go on. They don't end on the last page, any more than they begin on the first page.”
Cornelia Funke, Inkspell

Francis Bacon
“Some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly.”
Francis Bacon

Bill Bryson
“It was the kind of pure, undiffused light that can only come from a really hot blue sky, the kind that makes even a concrete highway painful to behold and turns every distant reflective surface into a little glint of flame. Do you know how sometimes on very fine days the sun will shine with a particular intensity that makes the most mundane objects in the landscape glow with an unusual radiance, so that buildings and structures you normally pass without a glance suddenly become arresting, even beautiful? Well, they seem to have that light in Australia nearly all the time.”
Bill Bryson

Ezra Pound
“The apparition of these faces in the crowd;
Petals on a wet black bough.”
Ezra Pound
