Top Ten Tuesday: Quotes I Love About Books and Reading


I'm worn out from all that's going on in my life right now (see last week's TTT post for the details), so this is going to be a quick post. I love quotes from books and quotes about books, but I'm rubbish at remembering them and writing them down. I do, in fact, have a book quote journal that I have kept—irregularly—for years, but I'm pretty sure I've used all the entries in past TTT lists. are some I found around the Web today. Enjoy!

Oh, and if you want to join in the TTT fun, do it! Check out That Artsy Reader Girl for all the deets.

Top Ten Quotes About Books and Reading

There you have it, ten quotes I love about the magic of books and reading. Which is your favorite? I'd truly love to know. Leave me a comment on this post and I will gladly return the favor on your blog.

Happy TTT!


  1. Great quotes! I like that last one 😁

    1. Ha ha. You gotta love a little bookish sass :)

      Thanks, as always, for coming by and commenting, Cath!

  2. Keeping track of quotes is hard. I've started highlighting quotes in my Kindle because at least they show up in "My Clippings" and I can use them if needed.

    1. Easy highlighting is one of the best things about reading on a Kindle. I have purposely bought books—especially non-fiction ones—in an e-format instead of paper so I can mark them up without feeling guilty! Ha ha.

      Thanks, as always, for coming by and commenting, Deanna!

  3. I always love book quotes but because I do them regularly, I took the expression "freebie" a little wider. LOL

    I love all of yours and probably have mentioned them on my list, as well. My favourite is the one by Louisa May Alcott.

    My TTT this week is about lighthouses.

    1. I love book quotes as well. I just wish I was better about collecting them. In clearing off my bookshelves for sorting and packing, I came across a handwritten journal full of quotes about life that my mother made for me. I'm in awe of how much time it must have taken for her to write out all those quotes. Amazing! What a treasure.

      Thanks, as always, for coming by and commenting, Marianne!

    2. That is a beautiful treasure indeed. When we sorted out my parents' house (well, mostly my brothers did), we cam across some old notebooks of mine with collected quotes. My brotehrs asure me I have always made lists of anything and everything.

  4. I love these quotes. Mark Twain was such a witty man.

    My post:

    1. He really was! Other than Tom Sawyer a long time ago, I don't think I've actually read any of his books. Shame on me!

      Thanks, as always, for coming by and commenting, Lydia!

  5. These are all wonderful quotes!! Nicely done!

    1. There are so many great bookish quotes out there that it was easy to find ten good ones!

      Thanks, as always, for coming by and commenting, Wendy!

  6. I love all of these quotes. I've seen so many of them before on Pinterest. Thanks for making me smile. :)

    My TTT

    1. Surprisingly, a few of these were ones I had never heard before. I love that there are so many great quotes out there about books and reading. They're always so relatable :)

      Thanks, as always, for coming by and commenting, Jenni!

  7. Bookish quotes are always fun and you picked some great ones! :D

    1. I agree. They always make me smile and nod because I so totally relate!

      Thanks, as always, for coming by and commenting, Lark!

  8. Great quotes. Hard to pick which one would be my favorite!

    1. Same. I put them in the post in the order I found them, not in the order of which I like most. I like them all!

      Thanks, as always, for coming by and commenting, Cindy!

  9. Love these! And oh so relatable. <3

    1. Right? Bookish quotes always speak to me.

      Thanks, as always, for coming by and commenting, Joy!

  10. These are nice. I love a good book quote but I don't always write em down either. I like the Twain one. And L Amour's also.

    1. I always WANT to write down the quotes that speak to me, but I'm usually too lazy to actually do it! LOL.

      Thanks, as always, for coming by and commenting, Greg!

  11. Lovely quotes and I like the pictures that go with them too!

    Have a great week!

    Emily @ Budget Tales Book Blog

    1. Yes, someone (well, several someones) did a lovely job putting these quotes and graphics together. If I were more artsy, I would make my own instead of stealing them off the Internet, but alas...

      Thanks for popping in, Emily!

  12. These are great! My MIL recently bought some bookish art for my living room and a couple of these would have fit perfectly!

    1. I love bookish art! I have several bookish paintings in my reading nook upstairs. One of my favorite ways to decorate.

      Thanks for coming by, Aymee!

  13. Yes, we are definitely more awesome because we read

    1. For sure! Readers are the best.

      Thanks, as always, for coming by and commenting, Sam!

  14. Great quotes!! I love bookish quotes!! Books are definitely like buying happiness! <3

    1. Buying books definitely makes me happy! Getting ones I really want in the mail for free makes me even happier...LOL.

      Thanks, as always, for coming by and commenting, Leslie!

  15. I love the Louis L'Amour quote about books becoming part of us. Hope everything settles down for you soon.

    1. Things are a *little* crazy right now. Exciting, but crazy. I think I'll be able to breathe again in January...

      Thanks, as always, for coming by and commenting, Anne!

  16. Oh great choices! I love that Louisa May Alcott quote especially.


Comments make me feel special, so go crazy! Just keep it clean and civil. Feel free to speak your mind (I always do), but be aware that I will delete any offensive comments.

P.S.: Don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away. I have to approve each one before it posts to prevent spam. It's annoying, but it works!
