When I saw Melissa post this on Avid Reader’s Musings, I saved it for a rainy day. It’s not actually raining outside, but I don’t have any reviews ready, so why not?

Quote that inspires you: “I am a man, who has hoped, in time, that his life, when poured out at the end, would say, ‘Good-good-good-good-good!’ like a gallon jug of the prime local spirit.
