Friday Quote Day!

You know the drill: every Friday I post a quote that I happen to love and want to share with you guys.

This weeks quote is from…

FAHRENHEIT 451 by Ray Bradbury!

*confetti everywhere*

First off, this photo is not mine. I found it on Tumblr for banned book week awhile ago. Anyway, Fahrenheit 451 has to be one of the best books I read for school. Fell in love with it. This quote just so happens to be my favorite from the novel. Have any of you read Fahrenheit 451? If so, what’s one of your favorite quotes from the novel?

Happy Readings!

30 day Book Challenge: Day 10

20130819-131533.jpg

30 Day Book Challenge was started by The Chronicles of Radiya. Every day I answer something about a book (it usually ends up about two books). I thought it would be an awesome way for everyone to get to know me.

Day 10 – Favorite Classic Book

        I had to read this going into my Junior year. It was one of the best books I have read for summer reading. I love everything about this book. Guy’s character is confused about everything. He loves books, loves knowledge, but knows he can’t have it. It confuses him to no point how people can just stare at some giant screen with the volume on 100. I love Fahrenheit for the fact that is represents society today. People are perfectly fine with being told what to do and what not to do. And, yes, the government,  or any cooperation really, fear knowledge to a certain degree. Not in a bad way. We as people also fear knowledge. The conversation we had last year in class was amazing. I love this book.
