New Site Layout

If you frequent this site you probably quickly realized that there have been some changes. First off, I purchased the basic subscription so that the ads don’t appear. I have no control over the ads so that presents the possibility inconsistency with the content I am posting here.

The theme I had been using is no longer supported by WordPress, and therefore I felt it prudent to switch to a theme that is supported. I chose a simple theme, one that focuses on the words. The picture in the head graphic is my own, taken of Lake Michigan during the summer of 2016.

I originally created this site to be a place for me to share notes I created in preparation for leading a book group, which I am no longer leading. Now I use this site to share quotes from the books that I am reading.

Unfortunately, the iOS version of the Amazon Kindle app does not share the text of quotes like it does in the Android version, instead it wants to just share a link. The consequence is that there isn’t a link that provides proper attribution. My work around is to use tags.

Each quote I share has a tag to the author of the quote, and usually I also include a tag to the title of the book the quote is from. The tags appear on the page that displays when you click the title of the quote. If you want to see all the quotes on the site for a particular person, you can click the associated entry in the tag cloud on the right side of the site’s main page.
