I am an avid reader and love, more than anything, to recommend books to others and engage in literary discussions. I'm not picky about what I read-- I love mysteries, classic fiction, historical fiction, non-fiction, and especially stories that are entertaining but relate to my love of science and medicine.
This blog will mostly feature book reviews- I don't know how great I am at critiquing though, because it is rare that I don't enjoy something. Each piece of writing seems to have something to redeem it, something it can teach us.
"I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library."
- Jorge Luis Borges, "Poema de los Dones"
"Control yourself," whispers the conscience.
"Stop," whispers the wallet.
"Shut up, we’re in a bookstore," whispers the heart.
One of my biggest regrets is not keeping a record of all the books I read when I was younger because I’ll never know the true number of books I’ve read and I’ll never remember the books that shaped my into the person I am today
John Gardner (via writingquotes)
if u ask me what book I’m reading i’ll either go into a long winded and enthusiastic summary of the entire thing or just lift the book to show u the title and keep reading
