It is Day 2 of the 2013 A-Z Writing Challenge. And today I feel like sharing quotations about, what else?--Books.
I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I have enjoyed scrounging for them and sharing them. I hope they encourage and inspire you to pick up a pen and scribble a Book of your own.
See you in print,
Linda Della Donna
