I'd rather have a free bottle in front of me than a prefrontal lobotomy.
The big print giveth and the small print taketh away.
Don't you know there ain't no devil, it's just god when he's drunk.

isn't there a thread for quotes already?

I am not immortal.
Whatever I put off for later
May never be.
Whoever doesn’t know now
That I love them
May never know.
I have killed time.
I have squandered it.
I have lost days…weeks…
As a man of unlimited wealth
Might drop coins on the street
And never look back.
I know now, that there will be an end,
A limit.
But there is time
Valuable and precious time
To walk,
Time to touch,
To warm the child
Who is cold and lonely.
There is time to love
I promise myself…
I will.
I am
I am ready
I am ready to give
I am ready to give and to receive
I am ready to give and to receive love

God I was disappointed. I love Barclay but this book just frustrated me.

I love Linwood Barclay. havent read his stuff in a while though.I would recommend the promise Falls trilogy.takes place near where I grew up in western new york state.

Very good reading.

Oh I loved the Promise Falls books. He’s my fave author I think. Bar that last book.

I’ve just bought Kate Mosse’s latest, The Burning Chambers. I like her a lot too so I’m looking forward to starting it now I have more time.

There’s a half read book on my bedside that I should finish too. I was really enjoying it and can’t remember why I stopped reading. Now I know it’s gunna be a ballache picking it up again after so long.

The last two I bought from WH Smith were 'How to stop time' by Matt Haig, and 'The marriage pact' by Michelle Richmond.
I went on instinct that they would be good reads and they were.
