30 Day Book Challenge! Day 8: All About Books

Ahhh...quote time. You all have been spared certain death-by-quotes because I'm not home to locate where I have them all written. (Beware tomorrow. Bwahahahaha!)

Day 8: What are some your favorite quotes about books?


"You are the same today {as} you’ll be in five years except for two things: the people you meet and the books you read." - Charlie "Tremendous" Jones



"I am going to tell you one of my faults, for it continues, I fear, to be one of my faults still, as it certainly was at the period of which I am now writing. I am very fond of books. Do not mistake me. I do not mean that I love reading. I hope I do. That is no fault - a virtue rather than a fault. But...I am foolishly fond of the bodies of books as distinguished from their souls, or thought-element. I do not say I love their bodies as divided from their souls; I do not say I should let a book stand upon my shelves for which I felt no respect, except indeed it happened to be useful to me in some inferior way. But I delight in seeing books about me...."Annals of a Quiet Neighbourhood (George MacDonald)

Fill your house with stacks


"A room without books is like a body without a soul." - G.K. Chesterton

Now it's your turn! Share your favorite about-books quotes with me? Please?

Love those! Here's a couple that I like:
“It is what you read when you don't have to that determines what you will be when you can't help it.”
― Oscar Wilde
“Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint.”
― Mark Twain
I think you should try to kill us all with quotes! I love them!

Love the quotes Sarah! :D
Don't think I'd ever die from too many quotes. I love 'em! ;)
Here are two I like:

"You can't buy happiness, but you can buy books. And that's kind of the same thing..." - Not sure who wrote that.

"I cannot live without books." -Thomas Jefferson

We received our second post-card from you yesterday, thank you so very much! :)
