Hey there, book travelers!
I hope you are all doing just swanky on this Sunday afternoon. Me, I’m not too shabby. I’m getting more and more giddy about the weather warming up. I’m also delighted that you dropped by to visit. I know you probably have a lot going on like binging Inventing Anna or Stranger Things, or getting back to the latest book you’re reading. Since you did, I’ll make this quick which is the whole point of this post. LOL.
I do love getting to share a couple of my favorite lines from books. They can shake you, inspire you, and even stick with you.
“Shut your fetid cakehole, thou festering canker blossom.” (Shakespeare For Squirrels, Christopher Moore)
Shakespearian insults are a freaking delight and you almost always enjoy it when it’s done to you because it’s so funny and clever.
“No, darling! Dying is easy, but you have to struggle for life.” (Maus, Art Spiegelman)
In honor of the graphic novel based on true accounts during the Holocaust that has been added to the banned books list. When I heard this I was floored. History isn’t something you can ban. Like every book on that list, read it. I have and it was worth it.
More to come soon…
