The Idea of You by Robinne Lee
"The catchphrase says it all: a daughter’s fantasy becomes her mother’s reality.

For Soléne Marchand, she was just being a dutiful mother by bringing her teenage daughter to the concert of her favorite boy band. It was only supposed to be just a few..." Read more of this review »

Yann Martel
“To choose doubt as a philosophy of life is akin to choosing immobility as a means of transportation.”
Yann Martel, Life of Pi

Bill Bryson
“But that's the glory of foreign travel, as far as I am concerned. I don't want to know what people are talking about. I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything. Suddenly you are five years old again.

Bill Bryson, Neither Here nor There: Travels in Europe

“Give a man a fire and he's warm for a day, but set fire to him and he's warm for the rest of his life.”
Terry Pratchett, Jingo

“Strength is the capacity to break a Hershey bar into four pieces with your bare hands - and then eat just one of the pieces.”
