Top 10 Tuesday: Favorite Bookish Quotes

The theme this week for Top 10 Tuesday is favorite bookish quotes - either about books or from a book. It just so happens I keep a list of quotes (because who can remember them without a list? certainly not me!) and here are 10 I love. I particularly love quotes that refer to the power that books can have - whether to lift our spirits and make us laugh, or to inform, to take us to another time/place, or to help us realize we aren't alone in the world.

To see even more great quotes, visit That Artsy Reader Girl as she hosts lots of participants...all with their very own favorites.

"Reading is the sole means by which we slip, involuntarily, often helplessly, into another's skin, another's voice, another's soul." - Joyce Carol Oates, author

Some of these quotes are from books that have been reviewed on Bookshelf Journeys. Check out the reviews here.

A Boy and His Dog at the End of the World

The Library Book

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

The Ten Thousand Doors of January

Hopefully one (or more) of these quotes will inspire you to keep reading. Next week's theme will be more visual - it's book covers with fall colors or a fall theme......just the thing to welcome in the new season.

Do you have a favorite quote to share? Comments are just the place to share it.....

Welcome to Bookshelf Journeys.

It's our goal to provide real reviews of the books we read (and we both read a lot of different genres), so that you can be introduced to some new books or authors to add to YOUR TBR (to be read) list. Take a moment to explore, read a couple reviews, and let us know what you think.


For your convenience, we use #hashtags in our reviews and when you click on one, you'll find more books with that theme. Hopefully you'll find it a helpful way to navigate our site and find books you'll enjoy.

Our review ratings are based on a 5 star (we do use 1/2 stars sometimes) system, and hope you find that helpful. Knowing, of course, that all opinions are just that - our opinions!  Let us know if you agree or disagree - we want to hear from you.

If you like what you see and want to keep up with us, subscribe below.  Happy Reading!
