Yesterday, not knowing it was World Book Day, 2017, I took several photos of books,.
When I was younger, I was constantly reading books. These days, I read more blogs than books. Is there a World Blog Day on the books? There was one, five years ago, according to Face Book.
Here are some quotes about books from books:
“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.” — Jane Austen
“Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.” — Groucho Marx
“Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them.” — Lemony Snicket
“If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.” — Haruki Murakami
“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn’t happen much, though.” — J.D. Salinger
There are 3,000 quotes about books at goodreads.com. I am stopping at five quotes about books from books, because I don’t want today’s blog to be a book.
Here are other photos I took on World Book Day:
Here‘s a previous blog post on the books, where I wrote new lyrics for “You’ve Got it Bad, Girl” from Stevie Wonder’s Talking Book.
This girl could write a book about how thankful I am for all who help me blog every day and — of course! — for you. Rather than wait for that book, though, I’ll end with two more pictures from World Book Day.
