Booking Through Thursday


Do you have a favorite quote from a book?

Oh, I have so many, but I'll control myself and give you a couple.

From Lady Oracle by Margaret Atwood

"Her glass wings are gone."

And from Alias Grace, also by Margaret Atwood

"Gone mad is what they say, and sometimes Run mad, as if mad is a different direction, like west; as if mad is a different house you could step into, or a separate country entirely. But when you go mad you don't go any other place, you stay where you are. And somebody else comes in.”

Aren't they just incredible?

Excellent choices! I've only read The Handmaid's Tale by Atwood, but really enjoyed that one.

Cool choices! I've only read one Margaret Atwood book but I definitely want to read more. Her writing is amazing!

Since I am a Quote Freak, I do have some favorite quotes. Stop by for a visit and read some of them today. I also have a blog devoted to quotes, so today it is featuring some of my favorite quotes from books.

Those are some fun quotes today. My glass wings are gone also... ; ) And I'm really mad about losing them... ; )

Great quotes. I really should read more Margaret Atwood books. The only one I've read is Surfacing. My BTT:

I love your quotes, especially the second one! I especially love the voice the author uses - it's so unique! Maybe I'll check this book out sometime!

Thanks for visiting earlier by the way c:
