We love our readers, and we love what they have to say just as much. Here are some of our favorite comments from the week that was.

“The better Pynchon line: “Here’s your quote: Thomas Pynchon loved this book! Almost as much as he loves cameras!””

by Matt on Top 10 Literary Quotes from The Simpsons


“I say long live the doorstop, as long as you know how to create an effective foxhole.”

by C.D. Hermelin on The Problem with 500-Page Books


“I’d love to read Cormac McCarthy doing something set in space, on space ships. It would be the holy grail of sci-fi and fantasy nerd-dom, the one ring to rule them all, with Ridley’s Alien and every Philip K. Dick novel coming in as intriguing but comparatively lightweight offerings.”

by Neal Call on What’s Your Dream Author + Subject Pairing?


“My favourite quote is: “That when you’re buying books, you’re optimistically thinking you’re buying the time to read them.” Arthur Schopenhauer”

by Tracey Allen on Reading Plans for the Next 2.5 Years
