Quote of the Day – Liar & Spy

Quote of the Day

Once, Mom came home from work and discovered that he had turned all the books around so that the bindings were against the wall and the pages faced out. He said it was calming not to have all those words floating around and “creating static.” Mom made him turn them back. She said it was too hard to find a book when she couldn’t read the titles.

Quote of the Day – The Magicians of Caprona

Quote of the Day
“Spells are the hardest thing in the world to get right. This was one of the first things the Montana children learned. Anyone can hang up a charm, but when it comes to making that charm, whether it is written or spoken or sung, everything has to be just right, or the most impossible things happen.” –The Magicians of Caprona by Diana Wynne Jones
