(sorry for the multiple posts if i'm in your blog list, but i keep finding great posts about books today and i just have to add them.
If there's a book you really want to read but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it. ~Toni Morrison
A book is like a garden carried in the pocket. ~Chinese Proverb
My test of a good novel is dreading to begin the last chapter. ~Thomas Helm
You know you've read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend. ~Paul Sweeney
Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life. ~Mark Twain
after this posted, i found more book quotes at V. R. Barkowski's blog. and there's a great post about books on K. C. Woolf's blog (i think i'm having bookshelf envy). over at The Eagle's Aerial Perspective, she's posted some cool facts about books.
