Inspirational Quotes : Skin Game

I’m reading Skin Game by Jim Butcher and a couple of things jumped out at me last night. First, one about interpreting facts.

“You have an array of facts in front of you that can fit any of several truths. You have to choose what you’re going to allow to drive your decisions about how to deal with those facts.”

The next one is about fear.

“… fear is a terrible, insidious thing… It taints and stains everything it touches. If you let fear start driving some of your decisions, sooner or later it will drive them all. I decided that I’m not going to be the kind of person who lives her life in fear…”

Nothing really new here, but occasionally your hear the right words at the right time and they hit you with extra meaning…

Proven Guilty…

Proven Guilty is by far the best book in The Dresden Files series (so far) in my opinion. The pace is really intense and it’s quite emotional, for want of a better description. I’m almost scared to read the next book because it must surely be a let down in comparison.

Grave Peril…

I was about 1/3 of the way through Fool Moon, the second book in the Dresden Files series, when the book went missing (insert Twilight Zone music here), so I switched to book 3 (Grave Peril) while I wait for Amazon to send me a new copy.

What with the illness and timezone change, I’ve spent a lot of time in bed not sleeping, so these books have come in very handy. I’ve now read 2 1/3 books in the series and I’m quite into them, so I’ve bought the rest of the series. Hopefully a delivery person will come knocking on my door tomorrow and I can get back to reading Fool Moon.

Cheers
