Booking Through Thursday: Quotable

This week BTT asks: "Do you have a favorite quote from a book?" And as a matter of fact, I do have some favorite quotes. In fact, I have hundreds of them! Possibly thousands! But don't worry -- I won't repeat them here.

Actually, a few years back, Booking Through Thursday asked a couple of similar questions about favorite opening and closing passages from books, and you can take a look at my answers here and here.

But for today's topic -- whenever anyone asks me about a favorite quote, one sentence always springs to mind:
Reader, I married him.
It's from Jane Eyre, and while it's not the absolute last line of the book (I believe it's the first sentence of the final chapter), I've always thought it really should be. It's such a wonderful way to bring one of the world's most romantic novels to a close.


  1. It's certainly an effective close to a grand story!

    (I would be too hard-pressed to chose just one quotation, of course. ;))

  2. A great short quote, stop and see mine.

  3. I love the quote - it makes me want to read the book.

  4. Yay, Jane Eyre, I loooove that book :)

  5. Jane Eyre fan, nice quote.

    here's mine:

  6. I loved Jane Eyre, it was one of my all time favorite books. I read it for the second time a year or two ago.

    Thanks for the visit today.

  7. I read Jane Eyre as part of my university course and I loved it. This quote is just so lovely. I think it really captures Jane's happiness in being married to Rochester. I've always loved the ending of the book :)

    Here's my BTT:

  8. I think that's the line that I remembered the most from the novel (also the scene when Rochester and Jane admit their love for each other and he proposes to her). It's simple but the effect is amazing!

    Thanks for dropping by yesterday =)


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
