What irony that I read this book digitally, having it fed to me 400wpm. Fahrenheit's self-inflicted dystopia seems very close to our present of 'fake news' and celebrity babies dominating media while genocide is concurrently perpetrated. I always for ...more

Hunger by Roxane Gay
"I am of two minds about this book.
Firstly, Roxanne Gay's suffering is unimaginable. Reading this was hard, hard to read someone's account of their living hell and building a body as a cage because life is so dangerous and cruel. And it is. She's r..." Read more of this review »

Hunger by Roxane Gay
"This book was fine. Interesting. Readable. At times poignant. But I am disappointed because I thought I was going to read something spectacular and brilliant - something that would make me look at the world and the people around me differently. I..." Read more of this review »

Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris

Eh, it wasn't great but it wasn't awful. I finished it, which is saying something for it. Pretty short, inoffensive, not as sexy as I was hoping. Probably won't pick up the rest of the series, but I don't regret the afternoon spent reading this.

Anton Chekhov
“What a fine weather today! Can’t choose whether to drink tea or to hang myself.”
Anton Chekhov

Carrie Fisher
“Anyway, George comes up to me the first day of filming and he takes one look at the dress and says, 'You can't wear a bra under that dress.'
So, I say, 'Okay, I'll bite. Why?'
And he says, 'Because... there's no underwear in space.'
I promise you this is true, and he says it with such conviction too! Like he had been to space and looked around and he didn't see any bras or panties or briefs anywhere.
Now, George came to my show when it was in Berkeley. He came backstage and explained why you can't wear your brassiere in other galaxies, and I have a sense you will be going to outer space very soon, so here's why you cannot wear your brassiere, per George. So, what happens is you go to space and you become weightless. So far so good, right? But then your body expands??? But your bra doesn't- so you get strangled by your own bra. Now I think that this would make a fantastic obit- so I tell my younger friends that no matter how I go, I want it reported that I drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra.”
Carrie Fisher, Wishful Drinking

Terry Pratchett
“It's not worth doing something unless someone, somewhere, would much rather you weren't doing it.”
Terry Pratchett

F. Scott Fitzgerald
“First you take a drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes you.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald

Chuck Palahniuk
“It's so hard to forget pain, but it's even harder to remember sweetness. We have no scar to show for happiness. We learn so little from peace.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Diary
