Wait, do people really not think that??! Because that was one of my favorite things about the book. I loved all of it and that is what tied all the different pieces together.
This is truly my new favorite absurd anecdote. What a great meeting!! What would have happened if you hadn't read it? Or pretended to have?
I am so excited to go home and curl up with this book!! Rainbow has absolutely been a must-read author for me ever since my first experience with her, and I ran through all the other books. With so much good stuff out there to read, I've become a lot less author-loyal than when I was younger, but she is a must. One thing I really love is how she is genuinely as much of a fan/nerd/obsessive as the rest of us (as she mentions here) - which totally comes through in her characters.

Hell is truly other people.... talking loudly anywhere near you while you are trying to do anything at all even if that thing is just pretending to be doing work and you forgot your headphones
I made it through The Hobbit and could not be convinced to continue. I know they are different things, but it just didn't seem like something I'd get enough enjoyment out of for that much time dedication.
I know you are NOT asking for recommendations, do what you want, but I enjoy Vonnegut's short stories a bajillion times more than his novels.
I somehow finished The Pillars of the Earth and I'm not even sure how or why. There are others in that series, I believe, but they take place like hundreds of years in the future? I don't know and I don't care.
I also made it through Oryx and Crake and Year of the Flood but never progressed to MaddAdam. Not sure if I need to really....
Are... those her hands though? They look big, and that would make her arms extra long... not impossible for Greek mythology, of course.
How did this baseball story just get even better?
It would take more than a decade for him to confirm his “trip” to a Pittsburgh reporter working off a tip from a die-hard Pirates fan named David Lander — or “Squiggy” from Laverne & Shirley, as most of us know him.
