Mid Week Quote

Good Morning!

I hope everyone is having a good week so far and getting lots of reading done. My chosen quote this week is by the great Oscar Wilde. He is a favourite of mine so I thought it was high time I chose one of his wonderful quotes.

 

“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”

 

Oscar Wilde

Happy reading everyone.

Mid Week Quote

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

I hope eveyone is having a good week and managing to fit in lots of reading.

I love this quote and I plan on trying to live by this as much as I can in the future.

 

“Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.”

Mid Week Quote

“History repeats itself, first as tragedy, then as farce.”

Karl Marx

 

This quote is something I agree with as everyday you see in the news instances of people not learning from history and making the same old mistakes.

Anyway that is my thought of the day, I hope you are all having a good day.

Mid Week Quote

Firstly apologoies for missing the Mid Week Quote last week, with Christmas and New Year I forgot what the days of the week were.

I hope everybody is having a good week so far.

 

“Whatever you are, try to be a good one.”

That’s a Wrap!

Well it is the last day of 2018! So what bookish things have I done in a year?

I set up this blog and have now been blogging for just over two months and I love it! I’m reading more books and blogs and discovering so many new books I would never have dreamed of reading before. Plus I’m talking about books on a daily basis, what is not to like?

I have read more books in a year than I have ever read before, 74 in total and I have enjoyed it immensely.

I have smashed my Goodreads reading challenge, my aim was only 60! Still undecided what 2019’s should be.

See you in 2019.
