My Thoughts on John Green, The Fault in Our Stars - A Vlog

I recorded this lots of times, and just ended up embarrassingly gushing and saying some weird stuff at the end. I knew I should have scripted.   My puggie is in it though:)

Quote that is "perfect," but might be slightly spoilerific: "I missed the future [...] I would probably never again see the ocean from thirty thousand feet above, so far up that you can't make out the waves or any boats, so that the ocean is a great and endless monolith. I could imagine it. I could remember it. But I couldn't see it again, and it occurred to me that the voracious ambition of humans is never sated by dreams coming true, because there is always the thought that everything might be done better and again."

  1. Your video was great. It wasn't too gushy.

    Because I have nothing better to do, and I'm kind of on a Scarlet Letter bender for the past couple of days (http://AvoidingHesterPrynne.com), I Googled "Scarlet Letter blogs" and you were up at the top so, of course, I couldn't resist clicking.

    I'm amazed at how much you read -- I used to read a lot, too, but something happened and life became too busy (although I occasionally enjoy reading non-fiction stuff).

    Someday, I hope to read more but, in the meantime, I hope to slog through "The Carriage House" prologue by the end of the month.

    Happy reading!
