I am a firm lover and hoarder of book quotes. Whenever I find a special one I highlight it on my kindle and one of my favourite features of Goodreads is the ability to save your favourite quotes and display them on your blog.
Some of my favourites are those that reflect the special relationship people can have with books. Of course I can relate! These are some that are really special to me (note – all from pininterest and clicking on the link will take you to the original source).
From Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. And I know lots of people in my life probably think this about me too. Especially my long suffering husband who often has to call my name numerous times just to get my attention! And if I’m in the middle of a great book, then my mind is only half present during a conversation as the other half is still stuck in the book.
From Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare. I haven’t read this book yet but I adore this quote. Books have changed my opinions on so many things and made me a more empathetic person as I experience so much through them.
From The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. This! Just says it all. And the best thing about great books is that they stay with you forever. And just when they start to fade, you can open them up and experience it all again.
