Hi Everyone!

Chatterbox: Blab About Books

Book quotes
Hi Everyone! ...

Hi Everyone!

I feel like Blab About Books has been a little underloved recently, so I thought about threads, and I'm not sure if this one has been done before, but I'm doing now, so, AHEM.

Favorite lines/quotes from books! Have you ever felt like an author just pulls you in with the first line of a book? Or like there was an AMAZING quote that you just wanted to remember forever? Or one that you love because it's so true for you? This is the thread for you! Please post your quote, plus the book that it came from and the authors name (If you can remember it.)

'Now for those of you who know anything about blind children, you are aware that they make the very best thieves.'
First line of Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes by Jonathan Auxier 

'Reader, I married him.'
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte 

'Call me The Giver.'
The Giver by Lois Lowry.

Um, I believe the appropiate quote is this:

"Kill me. Kill me and live with the memory. Then tell the stars that you won."-Gray Wing, Warriors: Dawn of the Clans-The First Battle

Sorry, but it bugs me when you mess up quotes like this, I'm just here to fix it.
