Layla Eats Books For Breakfast

...and takes some with her afternoon tea as well.

Read me again, I am a great book!

After thinking about this, I decided to share few books I enjoyed the first time I have read them and enjoyed them the second time (even the third and fourth...), and will enjoy them when I read them again and again until the end of my time. Those are the books I truly love, think they have something in them that others perhaps do not, have a beautiful language, or plot, or characters, or all of these together. And therefore I keep coming back to them once in a while when I feel sad or happy or lost or when I am seeking that feeling of home.

 

"I protested vehemently and announced that I was never going to become anything but myself, that I was of the clan of Peter Pan and we did not grow up."

- Just Kids, Patti Smith

 

 

"Never say goodbye because goodbye means going away and going away means forgetting."

- Peter Pan, J. M. Barrie

 

"We ate well and cheaply and drank well and cheaply and slept well and warm together and loved each other."

- A Moveable Feast, Ernest Hemingway

 

"If I read our story backwards, it's about how I un-broke your heart, and then we were happy until one day, you forgot about me forever."

- The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories Vol. I, HITRECORD & Joseph Gordon-Levitt

 

"Never is an awfully long time."

- Peter Pan, J. M. Barrie

 

 

"I didn't have much to say to anybody but kept to myself and my books. With my eyes closed, I would touch a familiar book and draw it's fragrance deep inside me. This was enough to make me happy."

- Norwegian Wood, Haruki Murakami
