Two year ago, when I first began thinking about what I’d want this blog to look like, one of the things I knew I wanted to include was some favorite book quotes. You see those on the right side of many pages on Novel Visits. At the time, I generated a HUGE list of bookish quotes that spoke to me. The ones I chose for the blog were favorites, but also ones that fit well into the spaces. There wasn’t nearly enough room to include all the quotes that resonated with me, so when I saw that today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic was “Favorite Book Quotes” I was thrilled. Finally! That Artsy Reader Girl has given me the opportunity to highlight more bookish quotes I love. Narrowing down the list was not easy, but here are twelve that i think will speak to most book lovers.
The obvious –
If people are saying this about me, I don’t care!
A little about the reality of a good book –
Books can change your life –
The importance of books –
Speaking to my love of debuts –
Passing on book love –
Book hangovers –
Book lover problems –
What are some of your favorite bookish quotes?

I like the way you went with this!
Thanks, Sarah. It was fun to put together.
Barb (boxermommyreads) says
I love that you featured quotes about books and reading. Great job!
Thanks for stopping by, Barb.
All so true, Susie! These are so much fun!
🙂 Thanks, Tara.
these are beautiful. You should make them into wallpaper put them all in a pdf file and sell it. bet you could make some serious change with these!
I wish! If I ever get in extra time, I’ll investigate.
These are all great, probably my favorite is the book hangover one…so true…and what we always hope will happen when we open a book!
I’m waiting for it to happen for 4 or 5 books in a row. We deserve that. Right?
Ha ha if being fond of books has turned my brain, then they can have it!

Suzanne @ The Bookish Libra says
These are all fabulous. The Louisa May Alcott one always makes me chuckle whenever I come across it, lol.
It’s one of my favorites. Thanks for stopping by, Suzanne.
I grew up with Seuss so that one struck a chord with me.
I could have done all Seuss. Such a clever man.
I can relate to each of these quotes! I like the way you approached the topic this week. 🙂
Thanks, Kristen. I really enjoyed your TTT post on quotes, too.
Oh I love how these were all about books-great post!!

Love your quotes! One of my all-time favorites is also a Dr. Suess quote:
up on top
you are seeing great sights
but down here,
on the bottom,
should have rights.”
Another is from A Gentleman in Moscow:
“Some years later, the Count would come to understand that he had been looking at the matter upside down. The pace of evolution was not something to be frightened by. For while nature doesn’t have a stake in whether the wings of a peppered moth are black or white, it genuinely hopes that the peppered moth will persist.”
