The Reading Fiend has been resurrected

I'm back home... and I've been catching up on my reading... I ended up reading another Jodi Picoult book that I sobbed the whole way through and could not put down. It was AMAZING! And I just finished another Sophie Kinsella Shopaholic book. Anyway, so I found a quote (there are quotes that start each chapter in one of the books) that I thought was really interesting:

"The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven."

-John Milton, Paradise Lost

The power of words never ceases to amaze me. I mean this is something that I am sure I have always known but when it is put like that it just... hits me! Good stuff.......

Oooh... and one more interesting quote...
"Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you."

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

AND AND AND... The most amazing thing... Sanyal got me the Calvin and Hobbes Box Set... My parents think I've gone insane... I just stare at those pages for atleast half an hour a day and then put it away with such care thatI think it freaks them out... but dude, it's Calvin and Hobbes!!!!

Thanks for reminding me that I should read Paradise Lost again...
The C&H is definitely worth staring at... but this is a very biased opinion
