About me




" Reading is rapture (or if it isn't, I put the book down meaning to go on with it later, and escape out the side door)."

William Maxwell

About my libraryMy Star Rating System:
5: Outstanding plot, characters and use of language, will never forget, will urge others to read
4: Excellent in at least two areas mentioned in five star explanation, recommend to others
3: Pretty darn good, wouldn't necessarily recommend to anyone
2: After giving it the old college try, couldn't force myself to finish it, would discourage others from reading it
1: So bad that just flipping through it turned me off and I decided not to read it, beg others not to read it

"Even when reading is impossible, the presence of books acquired produces such an ecstasy that the buying of more books than one can read is nothing less than the soul reaching towards infinity... we cherish books even if unread, their mere presence exudes comfort, their ready access, reassurance."
--- A.E. Newton

"I asked how is Knowledge found. You must learn to read, little sister....".

"Books don't offer real escape, but they can stop a mind scratching itself raw." - [Cloud Atlas] by [[David Mitchell]]
