Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - Parts One and Two by John Tiffany
Rate this book
Clear rating
Very easy read. I read the first act, then I saw the second act in NYC and read it afterwards. It really is a script, and it is hard to remember that because the world was built as a piece of literature first. Scorpius and Albus are unburdened by the ...more

How To Find Cheap Flights by Scott Keyes
Rate this book
Clear rating
A guidebook for really maximizing the underpinnings of flight searches. Worth the read. If you don't have the patience to follow his advice just pay for his email service to do the heavy lifting for you. Worth it!

“You are a wise man, Major, and I will consider your advice with great care—and humility." He finished his tea and rose from the table to go to his room. "But I must ask you, do you really understand what it means to be in love with an unsuitable woman?"

"My dear boy," said the Major. "Is there really any other kind?”
Helen Simonson, Major Pettigrew's Last Stand

Ray Bradbury
“You don't have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.”
Ray Bradbury

Camille Paglia
“Charisma is the numinous aura around a narcissistic personality. It flows outward from a simplicity or unity of being and a composure and controlled vitality. There is gracious accommodation, yet commanding impersonality. Charisma is the radiance produced by the interaction of male and female elements in a gifted personality. The charismatic woman has a masculine force and severity. The charismatic man has an entrancing female beauty. Both are hot and cold, glowing with presexual self love.”
Camille Paglia
