I read a medium amount of Goosebumps when I was a kid, but I somehow never got to this one. Yet somehow, this is the quintessential Goosebumps in my mind, and I have memories of being terribly frightened by the dummy's face on the cover of this book. ...more

I often think about how much of my life I waste. I spend a third of my week working in a small, quiet office. It doesn't make me happy, but it provides some money that assists in my happiness. It's a trade-off. I've spent many of my free hours at nig ...more

Les Misérables by Victor Hugo
"What an epic journey this book is. Now, I can finally look back at everything that happened and marvel at the sheer brilliance and emotion put into it. It was a rough 6 months, and I blame myself and my responsibilities for slowing me down. Yes, a..." Read more of this review »
Christopher and 1 other person liked Heather(Gibby)'s review of The Awakening:
The Awakening by Kate Chopin
"This book was considered scandalous at the time it was published, but it is pretty tame stuff nowadays.

I enjoyed the second half of the book much better than the first half. Many of these "classic" novels take a long time to set up the characters..." Read more of this review »
A Complicated Kindness by Miriam Toews
"It isn't just that Nomi is this terrific teenage narrator who turns the world inside out with every thought, or that she's funny as heck, or that it's an expose' of Mennonite thought and lifestyle... I gave it a 5 star rating because it cuts so cl..." Read more of this review »

Cormac McCarthy
“I ain't got an original thought in my head. If it ain't got the scent of divinity to it, I ain't interested in it”
Cormac McCarthy, The Sunset Limited

William Styron
“This was not judgment day - only morning. Morning: excellent and fair.”
William Styron, Sophie's Choice

Peter Matthiessen
“This world is painted on a wild dark metal”
Peter Matthiessen, Shadow Country

Douglas Adams
“It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there must be a finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely the products of a deranged imagination.”
Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

Cormac McCarthy
“Hard people make hard times. I've seen the meanness of humans till I don't know why god ain't put out the sun and gone away.”
Cormac McCarthy, Outer Dark
