Bookish Matters

The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.

Why We Bother

A romance novel on why women dress up for dates:

"Why do we go to all this trouble?" Parker asked. "Men don't notice anyway."

"Because what we wear affects how we feel, how we act, how we move. And that they do notice."

—Nora Roberts, from Happy Ever After
