I love quotes, but I have to admit, I never really take the time to jot down page chapters and write down wonderful lines from books. However, every once in a while, I come across certain quotes and simply can not pass up the chance - I have to take note of them, write them down, and remember them. When I read The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield, this was one of those that I couldn't help but fall in love with.
"I never read without making sure I am in a secure position. I have been like this ever since the age of seven when, sitting on a high wall and reading The Water Babies, I was so seduced by the descriptions of underwater life that I unconsciously relaxed my muscles. Instead of being held buoyant by the water that so vividly surrounded me in my mind, I plummeted to the ground and knocked myself out. I can still feel the scar under my fringe now. Reading can be dangerous."
And in other news, I do want to go ahead and mention about a fellow blogger's project. Enter Thrill Week at Tea Time with Marce... if you are a fan of Thrillers, Mysteries, Suspense, and Horror... then this event is for you. Visit her blog for more details :) Other than that, I hope you have a great weekend!
