- Grab your current read(s).

"I was walking to school, lost in feeling sorry for myself—my dad was dead, my mom in rehab, my girlfriend missing—when I saw the Bat Lady for the first time."
~ E-learning 101 by Dr. Liz Hardy
"Lying on my bed—the same bed my husband and I slept in each night—I shut my eyes against the intrusin of everyday objects surrounding me: the silver-framed family photographs on the dresser, Paul's stained silk tie coiled on the chair waiting to be sent to the cleaners, and the still-unread morning newspapers."
