My better judgment says I should go to Narnia.

Whichever place I go I would like to be a travelling storyteller.(less)

I will certainly read this again and again - it is at exactly the right level for my learning, and a comforting old, sad story.
Ròna agus MacCodruim by Jason Bond
"For the moderately advanced beginner. the language is right there at that level of "comprehensible input." There is a certain amount of repetition of phrases, (perhaps intended to aid in memory retention?) and the sentences tend to be short which mak" Read more of this review »

"Tha an leabhar seo glè mhath agus furasta a leughadh. Chòrd e rium gu mòr.

“If you are a dreamer come in
If you are a dreamer a wisher a liar

If youre a pretender com sit by my fire
For we have some flax golden tales to spin
Come in!
Come in!”

J.R.R. Tolkien
“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit, or There and Back Again

Florence Nightingale
“Women never have a half-hour in all their lives (excepting before or after anybody is up in the house) that they can call their own, without fear of offending or of hurting someone. Why do people sit up so late, or, more rarely, get up so early? Not because the day is not long enough, but because they have 'no time in the day to themselves.' 1852”
Florence Nightingale

Terry Pratchett
“And it be well for a knowlessman that he should not be here, for he would be taken from this place and his gaskin slit, his moules shown to the four winds, his welchet torn asunder with many hooks and his figgin placed upon a spike (...)”
Terry Pratchett, Guards! Guards!

“Here's a quick rule of thumb: Don't annoy science fiction writers. These are people who destroy entire planets before lunch. Think of what they'll do to you.”

message 3: by Kelly

Kelly Nah, I'd like my want to read sorted by genre. ie "Kelly, what are you in the mood to read today?" When I "want to read" a series, usually I just click on book one.


Darlene Dear Goodreads,

What Sparrow said.

Sincerely, Darlene.


Sparrow Alden Dear Goodreads, please sort my 'want to read' by series groups, in the author's preferred reading order. Then, if I ever get to Book 1, give me a little pop up window and ask if the others of that series or that author should remain in my 'want to read'. Then, in all your spare time, please cross-reference with audiobooks currently available on Overdrive, thanks! Cordially, Sparrow
