april 1st brings you...a quote

While we are not technically participating in the A-Z challenge this month, we are semi-committing to posting a quote from books we love when we get a chance, daily even, if possible. 

Here is today's quote.  I felt it was appropriate for a writing blog. 

Happy April, friends.

“As the hours crept by, the afternoon sunlight bleached all the books on the shelves to pale, gilded versions of themselves and warmed the paper and ink inside the covers so that the smell of unread words hung in the air.”

― Maggie Stiefvater, Shiver


  1. Gosh..."...warmed the paper and ink inside the cover..." Yeah, that's just awesome.

  2. Great quote and Happy April to you both :)

  3. "...the smell of unread words hung in the air." WOW!
    That is a beautiful quote, Maggie Stiefvater writes lyrical imagery.
