"There is no friend as loyal as a book."


                      Ernest Hemingway

If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.


Haruki Murakami

I prefer books over people.  I don't need therapy as long as I can get lost in a novel.



"If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it."

                                       Toni Morrison

No Regrets

At an annual summer's party, Allyson Porteus met charming Kyle Riker, and she soon began an affair with him. But when Janice Caldwell, his prominent and wealthy wife, learned of this, she had plans of her own, quickly ending the romance.


When Allyson meets real estate attorney Marc Kelsey, she embarks on a new friendship that slowly develops. Kyle, however, attempts to rekindle his romance with her and Allyson cannot keep herself from falling under his spell once more. She dreams of a future with her baby's father; she yearns for the three of them to live as a family. But when Allyson finds her best friend, Felicia, in bed with Kyle, her dreams are finally destroyed. And, Marc is always there for her, despite her confusion and obstacles. Allyson realizes that Marc is the man with whom she'll truly find happiness. When Kyle is suddenly hospitalized, however, everything rapidly changes, and Allyson faces the most difficult decisions of her life.

 “John’s Pond” begins in the fall of 1976 and ends in the summer of 1977 when the Wampanoag Tribe unsuccessfully sued the town of Mashpee for their tribal lands in Boston Federal Court. “John’s Pond” is the story of Tobin Horvarth, a young member of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe, who dates high school senior Laurie Matthews. When the story begins, we see that Laurie is sensitive to her classmates’ jokes about Native American classmates. Because of this they taunt her, calling her an ‘Indian Lover.’ While Tobin’s conflicts with the local police escalate, through no fault of his own, Laurie’s mother throws down roadblocks to the budding romance—a relationship that makes life more difficult for both Tobin and Laurie. Finally, in a dramatic moment, Laurie learns about long-hidden family secrets as the book reaches its climax.

John's Pond

Books are the quietest and most constant of friends:

They are the most accessible and the wisest of counselors,

And the most patients of teachers.

Charles William Eliot

I think of life as a good book. The further you get into it, the more it begins to make sense.


   Harold Kushner

The more that you read, the more things you will know.

The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.


–Dr. Seuss
