    To wrap up our posts on Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins, here are some quotes from the final part of the book that inspired me. I loved the ending of this book. After reading the final page, I put down the book and sat for a while in silence, drinking in the words and thinking (…) Read more »

    At the start of Jitterbug Perfume, on the page in between the dedication and the start of the saga, the author included four quotes. These quotes seem strange in proximity with each other, but they tell you a great deal about the journey you are about to embark on and I felt the need to (…) Read more »
