I should adopt the One Chapter Chance rule, but I hate giving up the chance that I might find a book interesting when the mood strikes. Thus, a stack of books next to my bed greets my chin, the dust collects, allergies kick in, asthma attacks, and nights become sleepless -- all because I don't feel in the mood to read Ghost Stories of Chicagoland or Michelle Obama's Becoming...or Collections of Irish Folklore.

Stacks of books, I tell ya!

"I have collected many books over the years, and as awful as I feel about this, I have started the "one chapter chance" rule. If I can't get into the book after one chapter, I give it away." Heather Dyakanoff

"She was an older lady. I would guess she was mid 60s, maybe early 70s. She had money, or maybe she wanted to look like she had money. Regardless her style was that tacky, clunky old lady look. Long fake fingernails that were thick with chunky light blue nail polish. A thick woven white sweater with light blue accent throughout the sweater. Big chunky rectangular shaped gold earrings, matching necklace and bracelets, chunky and gaudy. Her makeup was just as over the top as the rest of her. Red lipstick and all. She ordered her drink which was just a tacky as her." Nick Dyakanoff

"My office is lovely. The green, high-backed chair is perfect for reading. My desk stores all my letters and random office supplies. I have pulled out some old antiques and trinkets, too: my great-uncle's wind-up chime clock, the pottery cat Randy got me, my grandfather's old cigar boxes, my Katherina from Mexico, and some of my old books."

My writing can be cringeworthy at times!

Poor Paul. I think he got by all this time by his looks!

"I believe the trend in educational system and literary school of thought has strayed from any literary thought that looks for context--history, tradition, relevance, etc--outside of self. 30 years ago, reading Shakespeare meant studying the history and the politics and the traditions and the text. My experience with education shows that these are too difficult, irrelevant, and often offensive to many people. The only context that is important is the self--and no answer is incorrect. Everyone's opinion is valid--even if it has no relevance to the current book." Heather Dyakanoff

"“Doubt is the greatest flaw among men. And you, so educated!”

He witnessed his oft scowling and morose father scold and extinguish the delight and cheerfulness that was his grandfather when time came to deciding Sir Robert’s fate. There must have been hundreds of situations, the compliant and fledgling Robert Taylor then thought, when that wisdom regarding doubt could be the wrong antidote, or unfair. Men had worse flaws than doubt." Randall Wireman
