Writer’s Quote Wednesday – Read A Book

11 Nov

Happy Wednesday everyone! Welcome to my blog. Colleen Chesebro is a writer, poet, and book reviewer. She hosts an inspiring event every Wednesday on her blog, Silver Threading, called Writer’s Quote Wednesday. Anyone can participate by choosing a quote by a favorite writer and posting it on your blog. Check out her weekly wrap-up every Tuesday and be inspired by all the quotes.

Ronovan, from Ronovan Writes and Colleen have joined forces! He has been linking his #BeWoW blog share (Be Wonderful on Wednesday) now to include: Be Writing on Wednesday. If you would like to combine both posts feel free to do so and link them to Colleen’s post. She will make sure and add you to the quote wrap-up she does each Tuesday. Please make sure and check out Ron’s blog for more writing inspiration and motivation!

A book is a dream that you hold in your hand.

–Neil Gaiman

The only important thing in a book is the meaning that it has for you.

–W. Somerset Maugham

A great book should leave you with many experiences, and slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading.

–William Styron

If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.

–Haruki Murakami

    Thanks, Vashti. In our case, we read so many indie authors that it’s unlikely we’ll think what everybody else is thinking. Great quotes and illustrations. ♥
