Quoted @BBCRadio4

Is there a book that's guaranteed to make you feel better? Bibliotherapy: the power books have to heal you. https://t.co/NMK2CziNRe

"I say, Jeeves!" "Sir?" "Are your ears ringing? Mine certainly are!" "I do sense a certain tintinnabulation, sir." I reached, once again, for the trusty Oxford English. There's only so many times one can demand a translation without feeling rather a pill. https://t.co/PDcrKqfu5x

Gutted by the Hamill news. One of NYC's greatest chroniclers. Huge heart, incomparable feel for the city and all of its people, marvelous writer. If you haven't read his memoir, A Drinking Life, now is the time. https://t.co/ObfYtEoFUH

@AlexandraJacobs “I see that you have made 3 spelling mistakes." Last words of Marquis de Favras after reading his death sentence before being hanged (1790).

So I tried one of those calming apps for a good night's sleep, and the narrator instructed me to "lay" down, a grammatical error so enraging in its mounting ubiquity, my insomnia was actually aggravated.

"Taken en masse, the books paint a damning portrait of the 45th president of the United States," @sarahlyall writes. "But the sheer volume of unflattering material they contain can have the paradoxical danger of blunting their collective impact..." https://t.co/WLDasvPlV0

Quoted @SarahMaslinNir

On Thanksgiving Day a man climbed through my apartment window and stabbed me. After a lifetime with horses, I understood what it meant to be them — prey. Honored by this chapter excerpt from my upcoming book “Horse Crazy” in today’s New York Times https://t.co/ZXsBYPf1pV

This is exquisite. I've always admired my colleague @SarahMaslinNir for her brave approach to her work - and now I see how brave she is as a person. https://t.co/Xeox7tN1wy

News Analysis: "Reading all these books, one after the other, is like swimming for days in a greasy, brackish canal whose bottom is teeming with shards of broken-down old industrial equipment. The experience is not pleasant," @sarahlyall writes https://t.co/EFzYE7VfZp

I understand #RogerMoore is trending because Richard Moore has been appointed the new Head of MI6. Three thoughts.

1. Twitter CAN be wonderful, can’t it?
2. Congrats to Richard Moore
3. Any excuse to re-share this Roger Moore story by Marc Haynes has to be seized. So I seized it https://t.co/mduGu9e5xP

"As he lay dying, about 20 colleagues held a vigil and placed their blue-gloved hands on him." This is just so sad. https://t.co/JErvuGWw8R
