“I suspect that most authors don't really want criticism, not even constructive criticism.

They want straight-out, unabashed, unashamed, fulsome, informed, naked praise, arriving by the shipload every fifteen minutes or so."

~ Neil Gaiman ~

“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.”
~ John Green ~

 “Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home.”
~ Anna Quindlen ~

“A book, too, can be a star, ‘explosive material, capable of stirring up fresh life endlessly,’ a
living fire to lighten the darkness, leading out into the expanding universe.”
~ Madeleine L’Engle ~
