“She read books as one would breathe air, to fill up and live.” -Annie Dillard
All my life, I’ve found solace and adventure in books, collecting words like a giant quilt to wrap gently around myself. A wordy snuggle, mmmm…
You’ll notice I’m a girl who needs variety, from Chick Lit to Spiritual Non-Fiction to Young Adult, Fantasy, Dystopian, Books on Writing, Children’s Books, some Business reading, and even Historical Fiction, including a Country Western!

Dragonfly in Amber
by Diana Gabaldon
The second book in the Outlander series! Mmmmmm…so yummy.
“I like words that sound like things they describe,” whispered Perdu. His eyes were closed. “Evening breeze. Night runner, Summer child. Defiance: I see a little girl in pretend armor, fighting off all the things she doesn’t want to be. Well behaved and thin and quiet- no way! Lady Defiance, a lone knight against the dark forces of reason.”
-Nina George, The Little Paris Bookshop
“For Anne to take things calmly would have been to change her nature. All ‘spirit and fire and dew’, as she was, the pleasures and pains of her life came to her with trebled intensity. Marilla felt this and was vaguely troubled over it, realizing that the ups and downs of existence would probably bear hardly on this impulsive soul and not sufficiently understanding that the equally great capacity for delight might more than compensate.”
- LM Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
“When we yearn to be different, it is not just our restless ego. It is our accurate response to the creative energy within us that is seeking a new venue for expression.”
-Julia Cameron, The Artist’s Way
