My Favorite Bookish Quotes

September 29, 2020 Top Ten Tuesday 10

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature/meme now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. The meme was originally the brainchild of The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Favorite Book Quotes.

Confession time: These aren’t necessarily my very favorite quotes, although some of them fall in that category. Instead, they are some of my favorite among the graphics I have created myself. I haven’t yet created graphics for all my favorite quotes, and some of them are too long to do well in a graphic, anway. But these are lovely quotes, and I have had fun turning them into graphics through the years.

Note: All images used were open license. Software and aps used include but are not limited to Corel, Canva, Pixabay, and a quote generator I can no longer find.

Bookish quote: The unread story is not a story; it is little black marks on wood pulp. The reader, reading it, makes it live. -- Ursula K. LeGuin
Book quote: Barbara Tuchman on books as humanity in print
Book quote: It's always better to have too much to read than not enough. -- Anne Patchett
Bookish quote: A book that we love haunts us forever, even when we can no longer find it on the shelf or beside the bed where we must have left it.
So many books, so little time

    These are amazing! I love how you’ve done them. Next time I want a quote with an awesome graphic I’m going to hire you to do it. 😀

    These are so pretty! I love that Anne Patchett quote – my sister and I talk about that issue all the time!

    I think that quote by Anna Quindlen might be my favorite that I’ve read during this week’s theme. It perfectly encapsulates how I feel about reading—there’s no underlying reason that I read. I just love books! Thanks for shairng.
