    2. What a great book to have on hand. I will be keeping this by my computer as a reference book to pull metaphors out to use every once in a while.I won this book on Bookstr/The Reading Room.


    3. I should have known from the titleI expected this book to have a longer discussion about words and writing and how it all fits together, but it's really a book of quotations.but I love quotations! Yet somehow I didn't find that many in this "greatest" compilation that struck a chord. I wrote a few down, it's true, but out of 400 pages? Not very many. Plus, they were presented in an annoying poetic-like form. Unless it's an actual poem, why? Irritating and unnecessary.Read in bulk, the quotes see [...]


    4. If you loves quotes you will love this book. There are so many people quoted in this book that I was amazed. It is a great read.



    5. Today's post is on Metaphors be with You: An A to Z Dictionary of History's Greatest Metaphorical Quotations by Dr. Marty Grothe. It is 480 pages long and published by Harper Collins. The cover is blue with a light bulb in a speech bubble. The intended reader is someone who likes quotes. There is no foul language, talk of sex, and no violence in this book. There Be Spoilers Ahead.From the back of the book- Respected quotation anthologist and author of Oxymoronica and Viva la Repartee Dr. Mardy G [...]


    6. This book is a labor of love. Grothe has long been a quote collector and has compiled various books of them, but this is his most definitive work, along with an online database that hopes to reach 100,000 quotations (now at about 30,000). Ambitious! Here, he focuses on metaphor because it " the principal way we have of conceptualizing abstract concepts like life, death, and time." (xiv) His love for and joy in language is inspiring and enriching. Some favorites from this book:Adventure:"How narr [...]


    7. I won a copy of this book in a giveaway.I really enjoyed this book. It is full of different, insightful, amusing and inspirational metaphors on many, many subjects. Just pick a page and you will find something to make you think, make you laugh or make you dream. I will keep this book near for when I need a little imagination or motivation.


    8. I won this book in a Giveaway!Thanks so much to the publisher and to the author, Mardy Grothe.It's a nice size packed with metaphors for various situations!


    9. I wish there was more about the history of metaphors and how they've developed over the yearsbut its just a book full of quotations. Wasn't expecting that.




    10. This book is a fun read. It is also very informative. It has thousands of quotations and will keep you interested for hours.



    11. Loved all the quotes and the categories in alphabetical order making it easy to find a quote on the topic of my choice


    12. I don't know what I was expecting, but it's exactly a collection of metaphorical quotes—which got tedious and boring after awhile. I didn't read the entire book, but it wasn't all bad, it was interesting with some really fun, interesting, and amusing metaphors—I just couldn't read a giant book of them. And I don't think that's what it was intended for anyway. * It was fun to flip through though.


    13. IMO not a book to sit down and read in one evening. The beginning explains metaphors and similes etc. The rest is the A-Z (literally) of metaphors. I read a few pages each evening over many weeks. I found them thought provoking and can see recalling/quoting many (plus those on his website) in the future.
