The apparently unstoppable Dame Maggie reads.

I’m actually going to steal a dear friend’s story here. Mr. D., my friend, used to work at a bookshop in London. Lovely as this gentleman is - and he is the nicest, sweetest man you could ever hope to meet - he simply never got around to reading the Harry Potter books. Not out of any snobbish anti- feels; they just weren’t his bag and he never got them on his brodingnagian reading list. Consequently, he was unfamiliar with the films as well. So one day, Maggie Smith walks into the shop and asks him were the Potter books are. He shows her and asks if she’s enjoying them. “Enjoying them?” she says. “My dear man, I’m living them.”



I am the Mockingjay. The one that survived despite the Capitols plans.

This week’s topic is on the books people tell you that you MUST read. I could include hundreds of books here if I could. One of the simultaneously good/bad things about the book community is the…

Books keep me sane, books help me escape. Books are more precious to me than anything else.

    Sophie:Do I have to stay and make sure you drink it, or are you going to throw it under the bed? Because then we'll have mice.
    Gideon:Sophie. Miss Collins. I have not yet had a chance to properly apologize to you, so let me take it now. Please forgive me for the trick I played on you with the scones. I did not mean to show you disrespect. I hope you do not imagine I think any less of you for your position in the household, for you are one of the finest and bravest ladies I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.
    Sophie:Well, that is a very pretty apology.
    Gideon:And I am sure the scones are very good. I just don't like scones. I never have liked scones. It is not your scones.
    Sophie:Do please stop saying the word "scone," Mr. Lightwood.
    Gideon:All right.
