Each month we choose a favorite quote--something fun or something to make you think. See the archive for quotes from previous months.



"Not liking surprises is also the reason that I always read the ends of books first. Ray says this is a terrible habit, and if authors knew I did this, they would track me down to the ends of the earth and take away my library card. But I like to know where things are going. I like to know who's going to live and who's going to die, and in mysteries, I like to know who the criminal is right from the beginning. I've always wished real life could be like that, that you could peek ahead every once in a while, just to see what's going to happen."
           --Rebecca Rupp, Octavia Boone's Big Questions about Life, the Universe, and Everything
