Currently reading...

I was in a little beach town outside of Newford where I met a beautiful girl. Then before I knew it I had to venture into the Dreamlands, which seemed a bit like Australia, to try and save her. (Dingo by Charles de Lint)

Now I've just arrived in the Yorkshire moors, and my new landlord doesn't seem very pleased to see me. (Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë)

That didn't make what he did right. But when you understand why someone's done a terrible thing, it can't help but change the way you feel. (p. 195) -- Dingo by Charles de Lint

    "I was hypnotized by the way the quills worked as an extension of the scribes' fingers. I learned the recipe for ink and that adding vermilion or cinnabar would make it red." (p. 124) -- The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson
