3 Days, 3 Quotes: Book Tag (Day 1)

Hi everyone!

So it’s been a really long while since I’ve written anything here. I was nominated by The Ultimate Book Geek to take part in a short challenge. Thank you for the nomination! And do check out her blog where she reviews books (esp. if you’re looking for a new book to read).

The Rules:

Thank the person who nominated you.
Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote for each day).
Nominate three new bloggers each day.

So the quote I chose is from a book that was recommended for me by one of my literature professors, The Book of Lost Things. I read it and it was such a quotable book. But more importantly it was a quotable book of quotes about books. And I thought it was befitting to start this challenge with one of them:

The Book of Lost Things

“Without a human voice to read them aloud, or a pair of wide eyes following them by flashlight beneath a blanket, books had no real existence in our world. Like seeds in the beak of a bird waiting to fall to earth, or the notes of a song laid out on a sheet, yearning for an instrument to bring their music into being. they lie dormant hoping for the chance to emerge. They want us to give them life.”
John Connolly, The Book of Lost Things

Nominated bloggers today:

  1. Rhey of Sunshine
  2. DitchtheBun
  3. Paula Acton

Please feel free to accept or disregard the challenge. 🙂 To be continued tomorrow!
