"I like to see flowers growing, but when they are gathered, they cease to please. I look on them as things rootless and perishable; their likeness to life makes me sad. . .I believe that this life is not all; neither the beginning nor the end. I believe while I tremble; I trust while I weep."

Villette by Charlotte Bronte. Currently reading this. It's going very slow and is partly in French, but I like it a lot better than Jane Eyre so far.
Villette by Charlotte Bronte. Arguably Bronte's most refined and deeply felt work, Villette draws on her profound loneliness following the deaths of her three siblings. Lucy Snowe, the narrator of Villette, flees from an unhappy past in England to begin a new life as a teacher at a French boarding school in the great cosmopolitan capital of Villette. Soon Lucy's struggle for independence is overshadowed by both her friendship with a worldly English doctor and her feelings for an autocrat...

Villette by Charlotte Bronte. Arguably Brontë's most refined and deeply felt work, Villette draws on her profound loneliness following the deaths of her three siblings. Lucy Snowe, the narrator of Villette, flees from an unhappy past in England to begin a new life as a teacher at a French boarding school in the great cosmopolitan capital of Villette. Soon Lucy's struggle for independence is overshadowed by both her friendship with a worldly English doctor and her feelings for an autocratic schoolmaster. Brontë's strikingly modern heroine must decide if there is any man in her society with whom she can live and still be free. "Villette is an amazing book," observed novelist Susan Fromberg Schaeffer. "Written before psychoanalysis came into being, Villette is nevertheless a psychoanalytic work—a psycho-sexual study of its heroine, Lucy Snowe. Written before the philosophy of existentialism was formulated, the novel's view of the world can only be described as existential. Today it is read and discussed more intensely than Charlotte Brontë's other novels, and many critics now believe it to be a true master-piece, a work of genius that more than fulfilled the promise of Jane Eyre." Indeed, Virginia Woolf judged Villette to be Brontë's "finest novel."

Rebecca - Daphne DuMaurier I once claimed this as my all time favourite book. Definitely time for a re-read this summer.
Rebecca - read this at my grandmother's house during the summer I was 13...one of my all-time favorite books ever!
One of my all time favorite books. I like the fact that you never learn the protagonist's name. Very eerie book!
This is one of my all-time favorite books. Part gothic novel, part thriller/mystery, part romance. VERY good stuff :)
This is one of my FAVORITE books. #Rebecca #DaphneDuMaurier #book #books #novel #mystery #mansion

Villette by Charlotte Bronte. As this book was written by one of the Bronte sisters, the main character is an under-appreciated, long-suffering, pious girl who will bug you to death before the book is over because she refuses to be passionate about anything and remains very seclusive throughout the entire novel. And yet, I couldn't put it down.

Me Talk Pretty One Day- April 2014. I couldn't even finish the first chapter. It just wasn't funny- mostly just made me think the author was a jerk. My least favorite book that I have read in a while. Certainly the one I've put down the fastest!

My thoughts exactly. E-Books are cold, unfriendly imitations of the real thing. Books hold your thoughts, memories, and emotions like a photo album, but better. Only real book lovers understand!
A "Digital Book" can't be infused with smells, can't press flowers in-between it's pages. It can't contain spills tears or coffee stains. No only a really book can do those things. - Reading Quotes
Digital book quote: smells, press flowers between the pages; need real book; Upcycle, Recycle, Salvage, diy, thrift, flea, repurpose! For vintage ideas and goods shop at Estate ReSale & ReDesign, Bonita Springs, FL
A digital book vs. a real book…I'm not totally anti-digital books, but nothing will ever replace the real thing. <-- I agree pinner
I'm not against any kind of digital book, but, I must admit my preference for actual books for precisely this reason.
I cannot carry 1,000 real books in my suitcase or purse. I can carry 1,000 digital books. In fact, I can access tens of thousands of digital books, movies, songs, television shows, etc... in my digital device which rides along with me in my purse every where I go in my purse. Yes, there are some really nice aspects of actual books that can't be duplicated in a digital book, but I'll opt for the convenience and portability every time.

The Princess Bride by William Goldman was my favorite book as a young girl. I still love it and the movie!
The Princess Bride - William Goldman. I didn't read this (or see the movie) until high school...not sure how I missed it all those years!
"The Princess Bride" - William Goldman // A book-turned-film that has the rare distinction of being equally great - and hilarious - as both.
"The Princess Bride" - William Goldman // A book-turned-film that has the rare distinction of being equally great - and hilarious - in both incarnations. Goldman's fantasy satire-epic is a solid investment.
