Happy Friday everyone! I hope that you are having a great day, where ever you are! Enjoying summer to it's fullest? It's hard to comprehend that summer is almost half way over! It makes me sad because I feel like I should have read way more than I have. Well, hopefully I can make up for it this second half of summer. Now, onto the Friday fun ...
Jen at Crazy For Books asks:
How long does it take you to read a book?
Tough question! It really depends upon the book and the length of it. Sometimes, for a 300-400 pages book, it might take me anywhere between 2-4 days to finish. I just finished a 585 page book in 5 days, so I tend to average about 100 pages a day.
What drove you to start book blogging in the first place?
Great question! I started book blogging because I was looking for a way to meet other people who love books as much as I do. And that's what I've done! I've met some great people through blogging and have been introduced to some amazing books because of it!
What are some of the most swoon-worthy quotes you've experienced in a book?
Too many to mention, but I'll try:
"He's more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same." -Emily Bronte
"I have for the first time found what I can truly love - I have found you. You are my sympathy - my better self - my good angel - I am bound to you with a strong attachment. I think you good, gifted, lovely: a fervent, solemn passion is conceived in my heart; it leans to you, draws you to my centre and spring of life, wrap my existence about you - and, kindling in pure, powerful flame, fuses you and me in one." -Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre
And you couldn't have a swooning quote list without Mr. Darcy:
"In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you." -Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
So, how long does it take you to read a book? Why did you start blogging? What are your fave swoon-worthy quotes? Let me know, and have a great weekend!
