BOOK NERD : Kickass Quotes From The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George...
This is a book for book nerds.
It's a book for those in the midst of a passionate, life-long romance with imagination.
It's a book for lovers, a book for friends.
It's also a book of healing.
If there is a place inside of you that perpetually mourns for a love lost, this book has the potential to move you through that place and out the other side.
It's so many things, an amusement, an adventure, an invitation to dream.
It's a warning to stop squandering the precious days of your life and a call to really live them.
This book asks that you cherish your loves, savor every sensory morsel you are given and treat each day as an opportunity to experience the full privilege of your being.
For these reasons and more, I say that it is absolutely magickal...
