‘Sometimes you read a book so special that you want to carry it around with you for months after you’ve finished just to stay near it.’
– Markus Zusak

I found myself enthusiastically nodding my head when I came across this quote. I always thought carrying books around after I had finished them was one of my super weird bookworm quirks, but Zusak makes it sound much more socially acceptable, LOL. While this is not something I do regularly, I definitely implement it after I’ve read a spectacular book like The Hunger Games for instance.
I have yet to read any of Zusak’s book, but I’ve owned a copy of The Book Thief for ages and I’m hoping I may get round to it this year (all the movie promotion has spurred my interest into action). I know so many people who love his writing so hopefully I will too. 🙂
