Lindsay Paige (authorlindsaypaige) Do you keep up with your favorite quotes from a book?


message 2: by Lindsay (new)

Lindsay Paige (authorlindsaypaige) I do. I like to just go back and read through them. Most of them make me laugh. Some just make sense when you look at life.

Sometimes. But mostly I'm too lazy to pick up a pen and write it down :p

Few I liked and I've even written down:

"You have no obligation to share what happened before you creamed your face on our lovely piece of shit coffee cart, which I'm tossing in the Dumpster right after this meeting."

-'The Captain' Fran Komisky to Janie Hannagan, Wake, p.203

'After all, the opposite of absolute ruthlessness is absolute tenderness - and when you ripped the one away, you were left with the other.'

"He has no right to threaten my boyfriends. I'm eighteen. An adult. I don't need his help. I can threaten my boyfriends myself."

I like this one. I usually just stick a sticky note where the quote is and then later, maye a day, maybe a month, i go back find it and blog it. It's an easy way to keep up with it

You've read Night World books? What was your favorite?


message 9: by Lindsay (new)

Lindsay Paige (authorlindsaypaige) I have. I can't decide which would be my favorite!

Jeremy Hung (jrhmy) I always try to have a highlighter with me when I'm reading a book - especially one I know will have memorable quotes.

I highlight the ones that are of importance to the plot, and when a certain line makes me feel something.

It's also a quite useful when studying a book; if you write essays on a novel, you can always quickly flip through and find a quote you're looking for.

I had to highlight lines every few pages in 1984. I loved it.
