Book Description

Quotations are like molecules of mentality; they are the smallest recognizable elements of a work.

The Mind Boggles brings you hundreds of quotations from books, movies,TV shows, comics, and more, personally collected over several decades by best-selling Kindle author Bufo Calvin.

These are not your typical well-worn quotes. They often come from sources that get little mainstream respect; there will be many sources here that will likely be unknown to you.

However, the book is extensively linked, in a way that takes advantage of reading an e-book while connected to the internet. Not only are the sources linked (sometimes taking you to a place where you can watch the movie or read the book for free), but so is information about the speakers and authors.

Those two (speakers and authors) are treated as distinct entities. As an author, Bufo recognizes that characters often say things that their creators would never say, and attributes the thoughts represented here in that way.

The author hopes that this short volume (approximately 28,000 words, about 100 pages) will lead you to new discoveries...not only new things to read and watch, but new things about yourself.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quotations. November 5, 2012
By Tranq
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Mind Boggles is a lot of fun with many memorable quotations. I appreciate the many sci-fi and fantasy quotes, being a little geeky myself. While I wouldn't have chosen all of these particular quotes myself, I did find myself highlighting several quotes in each section. I read a section as a diversion or when I'm in a queue. The mind doesn't boggle, but it is thoughtfully diverted.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Thought Provoking Collection October 19, 2012

What fun it was to read through these quotes looking for inspiration and for quotes from familiar authors or favorite TV shows/movies. I am an avid Bufo Calvin fan from reading the I Love My Kindle Blog. The same thoroughness and care Bufo takes with with technical advice, etc. was taken in assembling this book of quotes.

a very interesting premise. The book was okay, I was expecting more. I was expecting more because I so enjoy Bufo's writing and his blog.

It just is not what I expected. Much too complicated and intellectual for my needs. I found it dull and too wordy.
