I was such a bookworm when I was younger; I totally identified with Rory Gilmore.

And now this totally makes me want to have a Gilmore Girls marathon (well except for that last season Amy Sherman-Palladino wasn’t a part of.  That doesn’t exist in my mind.)  Maybe that’d be a good New Years Resolution.

“I have noticed that the Christianity of a certain class of respectable people begins when they open their prayer-books at eleven o’clock on Sunday morning, and ends when they shut them up again at one o’clock on Sunday afternoon.

— Wilkie Collins, Armadale

— Mark Twain
“No one who can read, ever looks at a book, even unopened on a shelf, like one who cannot.”
— Charles Dickens, Our Mutual Friend
