"Finished Romeo and Juliet. Ugh. Just ugh. Love Shakespeare, don't love stories that involve everyone dying at the end. Except Game of Thrones. I can see everyone dying in the end in those books and me still loving them." Jan 05, 2019 09:44AM

Les Misérables by Victor Hugo

One of my favorite stories of all time. As Larry the Cucumber would say "I laughed, I cried, it moved me, Bob." It has everything in it: suspense, love, romance, war, honor, drama, betrayal, among a myriad of others. Eponine was my favorite character ...more

Great for a first time reader through the bible but I wasn't that impressed. It just didn't do that much for me. I think next, I'll read the bible through chronologically, which I've never done before. This was good for a bible study setting, as thos ...more

Anywhere from age 8 and up, this story will interest children. It was a fun mystery but not a huge amount of depth. I think the mentioning of interesting facts about the White House and past presidents give it a few extra points for me, as it makes t ...more

I don't know what it is about Zafon that I love so much but he friggin transports me into his world so effortlessly, he's quickly becoming (or is?) my favorite author. No book has ever touched me like Shadow of the Wind, and although this is written ...more

I'm not a huge fan of survivalist type books. My favorite as a kid was "My side of the Mountain." But I find myself reading children's books because my kids are. This was one assigned to them and they enjoyed it but there are so many others I enjoy m ...more

I sometimes struggle to rate things on if their good based on how they're written or whether I enjoyed them personally. For Austen, it's a clear 4-5 stars when considering her writing. She's articulate and concise when doling out characters and plots ...more

Amazing. Having spent a lot of time on my grandfather's farm growing up, I understand the the way the culture of farming looks and feels to those who've been a part of it their entire lives. Smiley obviously understands this as well. Years after my g ...more

Ernest Cline
“You'd be amazed how much research you can get done when you have no life whatsoever.”
Ernest Cline, Ready Player One

George Sand
“One is happy once one knows the necessary ingredients of happiness: simple tastes, a certain degree of courage, self denial to a point, love of work, and above all, a clear conscience.”
George Sand, Correspondance, 1812-1876, Volume 5

C.S. Lewis
“I am a product of long corridors, empty sunlit rooms, upstairs indoor silences, attics explored in solitude, distant noises of gurgling cisterns and pipes, and the noise of wind under the tiles. Also, of endless books.”
C.S. Lewis

Quentin R. Bufogle
“Writing is the dragon that lives underneath my floorboards. The one I incessantly feed for fear it may turn and devour my ass. Writing is the friend who doesn't return my phone calls; the itch I'm unable to scratch; a dinner invitation from a cannibal; elevator music for a narcoleptic. Writing is the hope of lifting all boats by pissing in the ocean. Writing isn't something that makes me happy like a good cup of coffee. It's just something I do because not writing, as I've found, is so much worse.”
Quentin R. Bufogle

Ernest Cline
