Lisa Lisa said: " Going on a brief hiatus with this one, as I've not gotten much reading done at all the past 10 days, and now I've left the book behind at my parent's home accidentally. Will restart on this in July, I think. "

Interested me enough to finish it, but just not my cup of tea. A blogger I like had raved about this one, and I do read some YA fiction, so thought I'd try it. While the friendship here is real and powerful, I just felt too old for this story.

Pete Hamill
“There are 10,000 books in my library, and it will keep growing until I die. This has exasperated my daughters, amused my friends and baffled my accountant. If I had not picked up this habit in the library long ago, I would have more money in the bank today; I would not be richer.”
Pete Hamill

Dalai Lama XIV
“There is only one important point you must keep in your mind and let it be your guide. No matter what people call you, you are just who you are. Keep to this truth. You must ask yourself how is it you want to live your life. We live and we die, this is the truth that we can only face alone. No one can help us, not even the Buddha. So consider carefully, what prevents you from living the way you want to live your life?”
Dalai Lama XIV

Terry Pratchett
“Blessings be on this house," Granny said, perfunctorily. It was always a good opening remark for a witch. It concentrated people's minds on what other things might be on this house.”
Terry Pratchett, Witches Abroad

Gabrielle Zevin
The words you can’t find, you borrow.
We read to know we’re not alone. We read because we are alone. We read and we are not alone. We are not alone.
My life is in these books, he wants to tell her. Read these and know my heart.
We are not quite novels.

The analogy he is looking for is almost there.
We are not quite short stories. At this point, his life is seeming closest to that.
In the end, we are collected works.
Gabrielle Zevin, The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

Terry Pratchett
“Getting an education was a bit like a communicable sexual disease. It made you unsuitable for a lot of jobs and then you had the urge to pass it on.”
Terry Pratchett, Hogfather
