Here are some great literary type quotations.
"I am an obsessive rewriter, doing one draft and then another and another, usually five. In a way, I have nothing to say, but a great deal to add." - Gore Vidal
"There are books of which the backs and covers are by far the best parts" - Charles Dickens
"Rock journalism is people who can't write interviewing people who can't talk for people who can't read." - Frank Zappa
"I love deadlines, I love the whooshing sound they make as they fly by." - Douglas Adams
I'll leave you with these thoughts as I go back to my reading.
Here's a snippet from my to read pile.
Max Barry - Company
Kurt Busiek - Astro City: Local Heroes
Harold Bloom - Genius. A Mosaic of One Hundred Exemplary Creative Minds
David Winner - Those Feet. A Sensual History of English Football


  1. I think I'll have to borrow the Douglas Adams quote for my email signature. That's me, that's me! I don't think I handed a single essay in on time during my entire three and a half years at Theological College. Looking back, I still don't know how I got away with it.

  2. Unlike Jenni who never missed a deadline in her entire uni career!
