“Ekki taka mark á stjörnugjöfum mínum; stjörnur eru heimskuleg leið til að tala um bækur. Ef einhver fær fimm stjörnur geturðu yfirleitt gert ráð fyrir að ég þekki viðkomandi og renni blóðið til skyldunnar, eða langi bara aðeins að hjálpa til.”

“Stjörnugjöf er heimskuleg leið til þess að tala um bækur. Hér eru engar stjörnur veittar utan þess að allir íslenskir höfundar fá fimm stjörnur af því við erum í sama liði.”
