Day 15/ 30 things

A Fan fic - is a broadly-defined term for fan labour regarding stories about characters or settings written by fans of the original work, rather than by the original creator.

I am afraid i have no interest in this. So instead i am going to post pictures/quotes relating to the wonder that are books:

The best of a book is not the thought which it contains, but the thought which it suggests; just as the charm of music dwells not in the tones but in the echoes of our hearts.  ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

TV.  If kids are entertained by two letters, imagine the fun they'll have with twenty-six.  Open your child's imagination.  Open a book.  ~Author Unknown
Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.  ~Charles W. Eliot

Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.  ~Richard Steele, Tatler, 1710

Let books be your dining table,
And you shall be full of delights
Let them be your mattress
And you shall sleep restful nights.
~Author Unknown

A house without books is like a room without windows.  ~Heinrich Mann

Medicine for the soul.  ~Inscription over the door of the Library at Thebes

To read without reflecting is like eating without digesting.  ~Edmund Burke

To read a book for the first time is to make an acquaintance with a new friend; to read it for a second time is to meet an old one.  ~Chinese Saying

Kathleen Kelly: When you read a book as a child, it becomes a part of your identity in a way that no other reading in your whole life does.- 'You've got Mail'

Great post; great photos.
I thought this was a strange subject to include when I read the list of daily posts. There's a lot of fanfic out there (and some are extremely good) but it's not everyone's cup of tea. xx said...
