Our Favorite Comments: August 20-26, 2012

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.

“…moppy kid’s book rabbit = more therapeutic than a whiskey and coke.”

by Nikki Steele on Growing Up With the Grumpies 


“Wearing jackets with heavily padded shoulders a la Dallas/Dynasty, like Joan Collins, would reduce the field of vision, so could potentially stop the peepers.”

by Andy Szpuk on A Pox on Over-the-Shoulder Readers


“I once read a quote about how there are spaces in the heart that we don’t know exist… Those realistic, bleak or dark stories in books do that – help us discover those sides to us! And to dwell on that sadness after finishing the last page… I rather enjoy it. :)”

by Saniaa Shah on Why What You’re Reading Matters


“I am such a contrarian that I even get disgruntled when books that I love suddenly become popular (I’m looking at you, Game of Thrones Johnny-come-latelys). I’m like a hipster with a band…”But I loved them when nobody knew their name!””

by dystopian on Basking the Warm Glow of Being on the Popular Side of Popular Opinion
