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).
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:
“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.”
