A geeky girl living in the big city, making her way, the only way she knows how... no wait, that's The Dukes of Hazzard. Who am I again? Oh yeah, a pop culture obsessed writer, publishing person, and occasional nerd. And I'm getting married. I talk about that, too.

Something to think of...

While packing boxes and boxes and boxes of books.
"Books are the carriers of tradition and the seeds of change; a source of solitary enjoyment and communal celebration; beautiful physical objects and abstract spaces for language and thought; work and pleasure; desirable and burdensome; always doomed and always thriving; cheap thrills and pricey enlightenment; worth talking about, worth fighting for, worth loving, worth sharing, worth making a life about."--Jessica Stockton, events coordinator at McNally Robinson Booksellers, New York City, in a Forbes special report on books.
Via Shelf Awareness.

Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend.

Inside of a dog, it's too dark too read.
