Quote of the Week

Welcome to the quote of the week! This week’s quote comes from William Faulkner, a Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winning author.

“Read, read, read. Read everything – trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You’ll absorb it. Then write. If it’s good, you’ll find out. If it’s not, throw it out of the window.” -William Faulkner

I’m currently reading The Tempest and Jane Eyre in school, and I’m eagerly awaiting episode 6 of Chautona Havig’s The Diary of a De-Cluttering Junkie.  What are you reading right now?

  1. Ohhh. How do you like Jane Eyre? I love that book…Aside from Tolkien’s works (which are in a separate category of epicness *ahem*), Jane Eyre is probably my all-time favorite book…along with Wuthering Heights and Sense and Sensibility and Til We Have Faces…
    ok so I have a long list of favorites. hehe =P But Jane Eyre is probably at the top of the list. ❤

    • I’ve been really enjoying Jane Eyre. I was afraid I wasn’t going to like it, but to quote Thorin Oakenshield, “I’ve never been so wrong in all my life.” 😉 I was reading some more of it this morning, and I just met Mr. Rochester. I guessed he was going to be mysterious and brooding. 🙂 Sense and Sensibility is really good, too. We listened to that one in the car over the summer. I’m still mad at Mr. Willoughby, though.

      • You have good taste in books. Hehe. …I should read Jane Eyre again. ❤ yay. I miss it. =P So epic. All the Bronte sisters' writing is amazing. That was one talented family. …and kind of a tragic family, too =P
