freedom to quote?

I would really like to post quotes from books I am reading but I would have to get the author's permission, which would be a real pain and take forever. This is really sad, as it would actually be advertising the books, as I would only choose exceptionally great quotes. The author I would like to quote in particular is one I am doing research on at the moment and I already tried to contact her via her agent, which was not possible...

So I am debating whether I want to change this page into one where I talk about books, but it is kind of pointless without being able to quote them...

Any really knowledgeable help with regard to copyright law would be helpful. But I am pretty sure there is no way of doing this legally.

Thanks.
