I'm torn on what to rate this. I ripped through almost 500 pages in just under a week. So I obviously liked it, but there were a couple moments that the popular-fictiony feel was too much for me (yet I kept flipping pages) and a couple plot related e ...more

I listened to this at the perfect time in my life and I am carrying pieces of her work with me. Worth revisiting.

Robert Penn Warren
“For West is where we all plan to go some day. It is where you go when the land gives out and the old-field pines encroach. It is where you go when you get the letter saying: Flee, all is discovered. It is where you go when you look down at the blade in your hand and the blood on it. It is where you go when you are told that you are a bubble on the tide of empire. It is where you go when you hear that thar's gold in them-thar hills. It is where you go to grow up with the country. It is where you go to spend your old age. Or it is just where you go.”
Robert Penn Warren

Jack Kerouac
“Live, travel, adventure, bless, and don't be sorry.”
Jack Kerouac

Walt Whitman
“A child said, What is the grass? fetching it to me with full hands;
How could I answer the child? I do not know what it is, any more than he.

I guess it must be the flag of my disposition, out of hopeful green stuff woven.”
Walt Whitman, The Portable Walt Whitman

Kenneth Grahame
“He saw clearly how plain and simple - how narrow, even - it all was; but clearly, too, how much it all meant to him, and the special value of some such anchorage in one's existence. He did not at all want to abandon the new life and its splendid spaces, to turn his back on sun and air and all they offered him and creep home and stay there; the upper world was all too strong, it called to him still, even down there, and he knew he must return to the larger stage. But it was good to think he had this to come back to, this place which was all his own, these things which were so glad to see him again and could always be counted upon for the same simple welcome.”
Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows

E.L. Konigsburg
“I could tell that she felt happy.  Happiness is excitement that has found a settling down place, but there is always a little corner that keeps flapping around.”
E.L. Konigsburg

Librarians DO read books. Or, at least they used to. Before library school. So let's try to again!
