The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie
Rate this book

Great book, and a quick, engaging read. Alexie gives a hard-hitting realistic look at poverty and alcoholism without being maudlin or whiney. Junior Spirit is an engaging character, and his narrative, while far removed from most readers' experience, ...more

Why I'm an Only Child and Other Slightly Naughty Plains Folkt... by Roger L. Welsch

In Why I Am an Only Child, the Bard of Dannebrog has lovingly rendered page after page of yarns that will, at turns, put a smile on your face or have laughing so hard you lose command of your bodily functions. Throughout, Welsch expounds on the chara ...more
Why I'm an Only Child and Other Slightly Naughty Plains Folkt... by Roger L. Welsch
"One only has to peruse this book to realize Roger Welsch is to humorous folklore what Stephen King is to horror and if you are new to his work, be prepared for a laugh-out-loud treat. Most of these slightly naughty jokes, antidotes and one liners..." Read more of this review »

Kristen Ashley
“I want you. I want to taste you. I want to f*ck you. I want to make you come and I want to hear you moan my name when you do so I know that you know it's me who made you come.”
Kristen Ashley, Rock Chick Renegade

Boris Pasternak
“I don't like people who have never fallen or stumbled. Their virtue is lifeless and it isn't of much value. Life hasn't revealed its beauty to them. ”
Boris Pasternak

Jeanette Winterson
“Cheating is easy. There's no swank to infidelity. To borrow against the trust someone has placed in you costs nothing at first. You get away with it, you take a little more and a little more until there is no more to draw on. Oddly, your hands should be full with all that taking but when you open them there's nothing there.”
Jeanette Winterson, Written on the Body

Henry David Thoreau
“We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake, not by mechanical aids, but by an infinite expectation of the dawn, which does not forsake us even in our soundest sleep. I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by a conscious endeavour. It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve a statue, and so to make a few objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious to carve and paint the very atmosphere and medium through which we look, which morally we can do. To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts.”
Henry David Thoreau, Walden
