Quote of the Day!

Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability.

H.P. Lovecraft

August 20, 1890: American horror and sci-fi writer H.P. Lovecraft channeled his frequent childhood nightmares into his work. He was born in Rhode Island, 123 years ago today.

  1. Side note, since I can’t find any other place to post it: Thanks for the share (reblog) about bookstores. That was great. I agree totally with the “vicious cycle” bookstores are experiencing, and that they definitely need to get creative. Used to be, a trip to the bookstore, Starbucks in hand, was a great part of a date-night (at least for me…). Now, they only carry about 1 of 4 or 5 books by an author (telling you that you can order from their onsite computer – but what’s the point if I can do that from home…right?), and our local Barnes & Noble drives me mad with playing the most irritating upbeat music in a place where I most want to be rather quiet and…in the zone…for reading and contemplation. You know? It’s almost as if they’re trying to hurry you out with some sort of crazy music torture. I don’t get it. ~ Anyway, I suppose you didn’t need to read all of that… haha! But, well, again, thanks for the share on that. (smile) Have a great day! ~ B

    • I totally agree with you, Bill. I used to love getting lost in Barnes & Nobel. Then they added Starbucks, was happy about that, but then crappy music?! And they really don’t have much stock, unless you want to truck (for me, all over NYC to several B&Ns) to another one that has the book in stock! What’s the point if we have to 9 times out of 10 order it online? Sorry for my rant LOL! Have a wonderful day yourself! And I’m so glad you joined Fortitude!!! That’s awesome 😉

      All My Best,
      Jill
