Top Ten Inspiring Book Quotes
Top Ten Tuesday is, as always, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Today's topic is inspiration book quotes. I love a good book quote, but am lazy about writing them down, mainly because I'm usually devouring the story and can't be bothered to grab a notebook and pen. Thanks to Goodreads' quotes section, I pulled out these quotes, which I remember striking a chord with me when I originally read them.
