Quoteskimming

Today's icon is a quote from a novel by Dorothy Sayers entitled Busman's Holiday. The full sentence is "How can I find words? Poets have taken them all, and left me with nothing to say or do—" Is not that wonderful?

Three book review quotes attributed to Dorothy Parker:

1. This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force.
2. This book of essays ... has all the depth and glitter of a worn dime.
3. This must be a gift book. That is to say a book which you wouldn't take on any other terms.

Truthfully, I've got nothing else for today. I hope, however, that if you've been reading a book, none of Dorothy Parker's sentiments apply.
