Dewey's Readathon

Operation Quotation

We love quotes. Here at geekylibrary, we read with post-it flags in hand, ready to mark our favorite quotes. We’ve built an enormous quote library. We include a quote in every book review.
And above all, we like sharing quotes. Here are some of the more bookish quotes we’ve found.
“Vines were climbing up the bookshelves in every direction, twining themselves around ancient tomes and reaching out the window; the tall slender columns that made the arch of the doorway were lost among rising birches, spreading out long finger-branches; moss and violets were springing up across the floor, delicate ferns unfurling.”

“To put the pudding in the puff: she had retreated to the library, her favorite sanctuary in any house, only to happen upon an unexpected vampire.”

Whether you’re at a used bookshop, a quirky indie, or a major chain, bookstores are a great place to browse for your dream geek."


Now it’s your turn!

To participate in this 24-hour Readathon Challenge, find a quote. It can be on any topic, just make sure it isn’t too long. Then comment on this post with the quote, book and the author to be entered into the prize drawing.

For an extra entry, record a quick video (selfie style is fine) of you reciting the quote. You’re welcome to embellish with costumes or props, or keep it simple. Just make sure you show us the book and then paste the link to your video in the comment on this post.

In the spirit of this challenge, and in honor of Shakespeare’s 400th Birthday today, here’s my quick video with a quote from William Shakespeare’s Star Wars by Ian Doescher!

Three winners will be chosen randomly to win their choice of two books. Bookish buttons and GeekyLibrary stickers will also be included!

If you win, there will certainly be a big list of books you can pick from.
