Quote of the Day
"He took great pleasure in teasing her; he'd decided that Bee was no name for a person, and that it must just be the first letter of her real name. So every time he came in, he addressed her by a new and awful name that started with B." —BAKER'S MAGIC by Diane Zahler

Quote of the Day – Everything on a Waffle

Quote of the Day
"I got the feeling that Miss Honeycut didn't even know what issues she was talking about—that she just liked using the word "issues" and would use it whenever she could slip it into conversation.

Quote of the Day – Wishes, Kisses, and Pigs

Quote of the Day
"You took what you had and you took what you knew and what you felt and what you guessed and you mixed them all together, and remembered to look out the window and listen to the birds sing while you were doing it. Plus, it didn't hurt to count your blessings while you were beating the batter. Louise thought this might be the recipe for the whole world." —WISHES, KISSES, AND PIGS by Betsy Hearne
