  1. Yay!

    I’ve heard of most of them but unfortunately haven’t gotten around to reading any yet. But I own The Invention of Hugo Cabret so maybe that’ll be next on my reading list…

  2. I think I could spend all my hours reading and still never get enough time to read…we won’t even mention the rest of the stuff that would go by the wayside. So tell me again how you canned an entire wilderness this summer…

  3. Life is too short for working a job you hate.

    Life is too short for keeping a secret that eats at your insides.

  4. And I still can’t find Skin Hunger at any bookstore. Gah. (And yes, I know I can order it. Amazon is my friend, but it’s the principal of the thing.)
