A catalog of my comments and thoughts on books, reading, and writing as well as anything I come across that seems interesting. I used to sell other people's words at an independent bookstore but now I hope to get by on selling my own.

"[Gertrude Stein] thinks Fitzgerald will be read when many of his well known contemporaries are forgotten."
