Reading Wall online

Here at the State Library of WA we’ve started a Reading Wall in the Nook area near the south entrance of the Library. People can write a label to share their favourite quote from a book as part of the National Year of Reading 2012.

But what if you’d like to share online? Add a comment to this post and share your favourite quote from a book!  (We’ll keep posting to encourage and you can click on the Reading Wall category to check on all the posts.)

  1. ‘Sleep my little babby-oh
    Sleep until you waken
    When you wake you’ll see the world
    If I’m not mistaken
    Kiss a lover
    Dance a measure,
    Find your name
    And buried treasure
    Face your life
    Its pain, its pleasure
    Leave no path untaken’

    The Graveyard Book – Neil Gaiman

    • One of my favourite reads – I loved it so much I bought a hardback edition. He is (I think) the first author to win both the Newbery and Carnegie medals for the same book in the same year.
      Thank you for sharing this.

  2. “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way–in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.”

    A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
