Of Books & Quotes...

I have read some fabulous books this year. Not too many, but hey, its quality, not quantity, right? :-) I highly recommend (they made me laugh and cry, which is my criteria) :
1. My Sister's Keeper
2. Bel Canto
3. Monique and the Mango Rains
I am about to begin reading (thanks Lydia!!!) The Lovely Bones, and The Color of Water. As far as religious books, I have started The Revelation of Baha'u'llah, Volume 1: Baghdad 1853-1863. Fascinating history well illuminated by Adib Taherzadeh.
If you have any recommendations for great books, let us know!

And now, for a very sweet quote:

Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.
Don’t cry because it’s over; smile because it happened.
We could learn a lot from crayons: some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names, and all are different colors…but the all have to learn to live in the same box.
Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler.
