"Nowadays, people know the price of everything, but the value of NOTHING..."

Probably even more of a relevant quote now than it was when Wilde wrote it ❤️

I've loved this quote for years but have never gotten around to reading the book, that will hopefully change in 2018! #TBR #OscarWilde #bookquotes #quotestoliveby #aquoteaday

"What I say is, a town isn‘t a town without a bookstore. It may call itself a town, but unless it‘s got a bookstore, it knows it‘s not foolin‘ a soul.”

Hope everyone watching/reading American Gods enjoys it. Haven't chosen the method I will use to imbibe the show just yet.

I posted #aQuoteaDay in April. This is the last one. If you've got a spare moment follow the hashtag and check them out if you haven't. I love them all and hope you will too

Zelma I am super excited about this! The commercial looks amazing. It's ready and waiting on my dvr for Mr. Z and me tomorrow. 6y
JazzFeathers I haven't read this yet, but all the hype is wanting me to 😁 6y
Moray_Reads Wow. The show is intense 😩 I'm pretty sure I'm going to love it. Hope there's enough to hook people who haven't read the book because it looks like they're really savouring the story. Enjoyed seeing the modernisations and additions bringing it right up to date too 6y

"It didn't matter where you were, if you were in a room full of books you were at least halfway home."

Yep, this is me covering two photo challenges and my personal #aQuoteaDay challenge in one fell swoop.

Leigh0906 Love this place!! My Saturday morning routine used to be a stop there and then the Bagel Station next door! 6y
Mariposa_Bookworm AMAZING! I used to work for Edward Mckay's at their Fayetteville location when it was open. The Nashville and Knoxville locations are owned by the owner's ex-wife. 6y
Mariposa_Bookworm Is there still that amazing bakery across the street? I used to stop there every time I went to Winston. 6y
ValerieAndBooks How did I not know about this place in W-S 😭? My daughter had dance intensives at UNCSA for three summers in a row and if I had known, I'd have stopped by there at one of my pick-up/drop-off trips. 6y
TobeyTheScavengerMonk @ValerieAndBooks My brother got a screenwriting degree from UNCSA! 6y
Maggany Anytime you can leave with a bag containing books, movies, AND some vintage vinyl...we call that a win!!! 6y

“Sitting up all night would be pointless if somebody you loved wasn't sitting up with you, picking out music to play and helping you kill the bourbon. Walking by yourself in the rain is for college kids who think loneliness makes poets.”

This is a sweet sad love story about two ghosts who fall for each other in a New York cemetery by the author of The Last Unicorn. #aQuoteaDay

JazzFeathers Two ghosts falling in love in a cemetery? Now that's something l want to read! 6y

I've posted this before. I'll post it again. My favorite quote. If I ever get a tattoo, it will be the first sentence of this.

Jabberwocky Is the book as profound as this quote?! 6y
TobeyTheScavengerMonk Oh @Jaberwocky let me tell you about this odd little icepunk novel set in the sparkling city of New Venice, just below the North Pole, in 1908. Brentford Orsini and his pal Gabriel D'Allier navigate a frozen world of music, drugs, airships, women's suffrage and "poletics". All this and the mythical Polar kangaroo... 6y
TobeyTheScavengerMonk @Jaberwocky Check out the gorgeous cover too. 6y

Jabberwocky @TobeyTheScavengerMonk so I just ordered this from my library. 😅 I'll keep you posted 6y
TobeyTheScavengerMonk @Jaberwocky Please do. It's slow going, not much in the way of propulsive plot, but it's one of those books where the language is so great you just enjoy the ride. 6y
Suet624 Lovely first sentence! 6y

"Lemons. He liked lemons. They made you make funny faces when you bit them, and a very, very long way in the future there was a really amazing planet where they'd evolved into people and lived in harmony with a variety of hyper-intelligent bee. Evolution. Thousands and thousands of years of tiny changes could turn little burning sparks of chemistry into people, into monsters and angels and even human beings."

"Shakespeare, in some sense, helped create the modern man, didn't he, his influence is that pervasive. He held the mirror up to nature, but he also created that mirror: so the image he created is the very one we hold ourselves up to.”
