Squee Sunday: Book day

Books are your best guide to getting lost
Books are your best guide: Chan Hwee Chong

Chan Hwee Chong designed this, along with an entire, awesome alphabet made out of books.

A girl under a tree on a floating island
This is where I’d like to spend the summer. The Reading Tree by Kitiekat4u
A book is an adventure waiting to happen

I have always imagined paradise will be a kind of library
Quote from Jorge Luis Borges
A person who won'r read has no advantage over one who can't.
Faried Omarah

And some quotes I’d love to put together with pictures if only I had a talent for graphic design and didn’t have three books waiting inside my my head, trying to get out.

Marcus Tullius Cicero

  • “A room without books is like a body without a soul.”


Frank Zappa

  • “So many books, so little time.”


Neil Gaiman

  • “Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”


Toni Morrison

  • “If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”

(Er yes, I knew there was something I was supposed to be doing.)


Terry Pratchett:

  • “Stories of imagination tend to upset those without one.”
  • “If you have enough book space, I don’t want to talk to you.”
  • “Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”


Talking of which:

Go everywhere sitting down
By Chan Hwee Chong again

Now excuse me, I’m supposed to be working on the whodunnit.
