I found another funny one. Not for our group, but I thought it was at least funny enough to share!

"A dirty book is rarely dusty. - unknown"


message 15: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (simplysarah13) | 315 comments Hmm... That explains why 50 Shades of Grey will never get dusty! LOL

Mehsi | 26632 comments Mm a motto, that sounds fun. :) These are what I came up with:

Live to read, read to live.

Let us bring/transport you to new worlds.

Books, the only food a human needs.

Why go on a far away vacation, when you got so many different worlds in a book.
Or
Why go on vacation? Just open a book and let yourself be transported to a new world.

Books, bringing colour to my life 24/7/365.

Reading is my salvation, my life, my love.

Forget fruit or vegetables, books give me my vitamins!

message 21: by Gisbelle (new)

★RavenclawReader★ (stargazer101) | 299 comments This one's kind of rude, but still:

“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”
― Jane Austen

And...

"Just because something happens in your head, doesn't mean it's not real."

"We don't travel by plane; we travel by book!"

Mine are kind of stupid, but oh well.


message 23: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments It does sound pretty obnoxious :)

But I like this one "We don't travel by plane; we travel by book!"


★RavenclawReader★ (stargazer101) | 299 comments Haha, thanks. Oh, and: "Uniting bookworms, since 2012" (This group was created in 2012, right?)

message 33: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments 25. So I can make a new masthead for April


message 34: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (simplysarah13) | 315 comments Oh, okay. I saw the survey after I asked you and I was like.. Ugh! I feel stupid now!
How do you make your mastheads? They always look awesome!


message 35: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments Nah, don't think like that :) I don't mind answering the questions.

As for the masthead, I use photoshop and some apps on my iPad. Thanks :) Glad you think they look good :D


message 36: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (simplysarah13) | 315 comments I can never figure out Photoshop. I have it, but it's so complex. Maybe I can take a class on it next year or so in college. I'd love to learn it. And no problem. Thanks for your hard work for making this such a great group. :D


message 37: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments It took me awhile to figure things out too. But once you understand the basic concepts and tools, it is not that difficult :) I'm sure you can do it!

Thanks Sarah! I really don't mind doing all the work in the group. :)
