Not having a car gives me volumes not to think or worry about, and makes walks around the neighborhood a daily adventure.
Sad to think that we won’t have any new stories from John Updike, one of the last century’s masters. But so many here in the two volumes of his collected stories, 186 by my count, stories to read, reread, savor over the course of a cold season. Updike’s genius in the short form spills out of these many, many pages.

If I had a story idea that I felt would work best in three volumes I might write a trilogy eventually. I’d very likely write it all at once, though, so I could work on it as a whole and not broken into individual volumes.

It is not a life at all. It is a reticence, in three volumes.
William E. Gladstone

I have in the past acquired a reputation for concocting non-existent writers and unwritten volumes.
To be in a situation where you have another year on your deal and the team still wants to extend that – they see your value, they want you in the building, and they want to build around you – that speaks volumes. That’s very, very important to a player like me.

I was a complete and typical only child. I was bookish, and sport was out of the question anyway. I had read all of Dickens and most of the volumes of Arthur Mee’s Children’s Encyclopedia by the time I was 11. The only time I was popular at school was the day I won the debating competition for my house.

Today I begin to understand what love must be, if it exists… When we are parted, we each feel the lack of the other half of ourselves. We are incomplete like a book in two volumes of which the first has been lost. That is what I imagine love to be: incompleteness in absence.
Edmond de Goncourt
After I had written seventeen full-length mysteries, two volumes of mini-mysteries, a travel guide and some quiz books, not to mention a spin-off Roman Mystery Scrolls series, I thought it was time I moved to new historical pastures.

In Europe, you would almost never have people with large amounts of income being happy with a two-volume vehicle like a hatchback or a minivan. They want to structurally show their societal position, which is why three volumes are so popular. They show ‘I’m part of that hierarchy.’
