30 day book challenge - day 14.

30 day book challenge - DAY FOURTEEN.

14. A book you regret not having read sooner.

Most of my re-read classics, really. There could always have been a sooner. They could have been with me for longer. I’m especially sorry about not reading Austen before I got to college.

Actually I’m mostly sorry that I had to learn to read in school instead of on my father’s lap before I could walk, Scout Finch-style.

"Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing."

Scout Finch, To Kill A Mockingbird

This is going to be my next tattoo.

30 day book challenge - day 9.

30 day book challenge - DAY NINE.

9. Your favorite quotes about books.

Can I just say I’m really enjoying this challenge? First off, the one I’ve already posted in “quotes from books” and that I’m getting tattooed at some point:

"Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing."

Then there are a couple of excellent Austen quotes, from and about books:

I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book! When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.”
(For once, Caroline Bingley has a point even if she’s just pretending. Pride and Prejudice) 

"The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid."
(Henry Tilney, Northanger Abbey) 

And then the same sentiment returns in a more explicitly sex-oriented way in this John Waters quote:

"We need to make books cool again. If you go home with somebody and they don’t have books, don’t fuck them."
