Best Book Lines
This one comes from a fabulous book I finished the other night called The Girls by Lori Lansens. As I mentioned in my review I really enjoyed this book and I found some fabulous lines.
In an effort to remember the Best Book Lines I find when I'm reading, I have started turning up the bottom corner of the page the quote is on, in the hopes that when I sit down later to write one of these posts I will remember which quote it was that I loved.
So anyway, here is my first Best Book Line from The Girls.
I feel, holding the books, accommodating their weight and breathing their dust, an abiding love. I trust them, in a way that I can't trust my computer, though I couldn't do without it. Books are matter. My books matter.
This brief passage sums up exactly how I feel about books! You all know of my love for books. I love to read them. But I also just love books. I love the smell of them, the feel of them, the beauty of well put-together books. I have been known to buy a book purely because of the way it has been bound or the paper used or the cover art.
And books are always there. When you pick up a well-loved book, there is a feeling of safety and comfort, the feeling of meeting up with friends you haven't seen for a while.
