I wanted to love this book. It's meant to be the prequel to Jane Eyre, which is one of my favorite classics. In that book, Antoinette was the shadowy Madwoman Bertha of the Attic. She had a minimal sketch of her backstory and no motivation beyond mad ...more

The Radium Girls by Kate Moore

What a story! The miscarriage of responsibility on the part of the companies who knowingly let young employees follow unsafe working processes was terrible and went on for far too long.

While I enjoyed the read, you get the gist of the situation early

Celine by Peter Heller

This was an enjoyable, fun read. I liked the character of Celine, her affection for guns, and the low-key loving relationship with her husband.

Gabriel García Márquez
“He dug so deeply into her sentiments that in search of interest he found love, because by trying to make her love him he ended up falling in love with her. Petra Cotes, for her part, loved him more and more as she felt his love increasing, and that was how in the ripeness of autumn she began to believe once more in the youthful superstition that poverty was the servitude of love. Both looked back then on the wild revelry, the gaudy wealth, and the unbridled fornication as an annoyance and they lamented that it had cost them so much of their lives to find the paradise of shared solitude. Madly in love after so many years of sterile complicity, they enjoyed the miracle of living each other as much at the table as in bed, and they grew to be so happy that even when they were two worn-out people they kept on blooming like little children and playing together like dogs.”
Gabriel García Márquez, One Hundred Years of Solitude

Isaac Asimov
“Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'
Isaac Asimov

Søren Kierkegaard
“Once you label me you negate me.”

Hunter S. Thompson
“Faster, Faster, until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death.”
