Quote Love (1)

Quote Love is a new meme hosted by 'Midnight Twilight'. It's kind of like Teaser Tuesday from Should Be Reading, but with this one you can choose any quote from any book, not just the one you're currently reading. The quote can be thought provoking, or funny, or just really powerful, it's all up to you which kind of quote you choose.

Here is what you have to do to participate:
1) Choose one of your favorite quotes.
2) Post the quote, and write what you like about it.
3) Make sure to put the title and author so if someone else likes the quote they can check out the book.
4) Post your link on Midnight Twilight's Post.

I saw this and thought it sounded cool, so I thought I would join in.

So here is my quote for the week:

"A good library will never be too neat, or too dusty, because somebody will always be in it, taking books off the shelves and staying up late reading them."
— Lemony Snicket (Horseradish: Bitter Truths You Can't Avoid) 

I like this quote because it really does reflect on what a good library should be like, and i'm pleased to say the library I work in never stays neat or tidy for long. It also captures the magic of getting a book you really love and just having to finish it.

I love this quote! I work at a bookstore and it's the same thing. Although we are trying to sell books we still have these comfy chairs all around for people to sit around and relax and read. Then we have piles of books everywhere! :)

I really like your blog! I'm a new follower.

Sounds like a great bookstore there's nowhere to read in my local one!
Thanks for stopping by and leaving such a lovely comment.

I like this quote. One day I will have a huge "good" library of my own.
