About Me
English major. Librarian. Book clubber. Book Blogger. Lover of literary fiction.

A book is a garden, an orchard, a storehouse, a party,
a company by the way, a counselor, a multitude of counselors. ~ Henry Ward Beecher

Fiction reveals truths that reality obscures ~Jessamyn West

A book must be an ice-axe to break the seas frozen inside our soul. ~Franz Kafka
