Book Quotes of the Week

"Here's what I mean by the miracle of language.

And here's the magic. You're different. You can never go back to being exactly the same person you were before you disappeared into that book." Anthony Doerr

"In dystopia, when time has run out and the worst is yet to come, the urge to live still remains." Elizabeth Fifer

"Sometimes you just need to lay on the couch and read for a couple of years." N.N.
