Music Boxes by Tonja Drecker
"I loved the story. Imaginative and creative. It was such a fun read. I loved the mystery of it. It kept me turning pages with just enough thrill to pull me totally into the world. The ups and downs of friendship, magic, and an unexpected twist. Th..." Read more of this review »

Paulo Coelho
“…there was a language in the world that everyone understood, a language the boy had used throughout the time that he was trying to improve things at the shop. It was the language of enthusiasm, of things accomplished with love and purpose, and as part of a search for something believed in and desired.”
Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

Angela J. Townsend
“All greed leads to destruction.”
Angela J. Townsend, Angus Macbain and the Island of Sleeping Kings

Paulo Coelho
“People say strange things, the boy thought. Sometimes it's better to be with the
sheep, who don't say anything. And better still to be alone with one's books.
They tell their incredible stories at the time when you want to hear them. But
when you're talking to people, they say some things that are so strange that
you don't know how to continue the conversation.”
Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

Ray Bradbury
“Last night I thought about all the kerosene I've used in the past ten years. And I thought about books. And for the first time I realized that a man was behind each one of the books. A man had to think them up. A man had to take a long time to put them down on paper. And I'd never even thought that thought before...It took some man a lifetime maybe to put some of his thoughts down, looking around at the world and life, and then I come along in two minutes and boom! it's all over.”
Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

Susan Cain
“I worry that there are people who are put in positions of authority because they're good talkers, but they don't have good ideas. It's so easy to confuse schmoozing ability with talent. Someone seems like a good presenter, easy to get along with, and those traits are rewarded. Well, why is that? They're valuable traits, but we put too much of a premium on presenting and not enough on substance and critical thinking.”
Susan Cain, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking
