A book quote you know by heart

I had a hard time with this one, because it seems that I’ve never read a lot of the books where I know the memorable lines. I discussed it trying to get ideas about which ones to include.

When I stepped out into the bright sunlight from the darkness of the movie house” The Outsiders. A book I have read multiple times. The movie almost does it justice.

“Alas, poor Yorick. I knew him” Hamlet. Read it multiple times.

“Call me Ishmael.” Moby Dick. Never read it.

An anthology you love

I don’t tend to read anthologies. Looking back at those that I’ve read over the years, two books stick out in my mind, and they are both Stephen King books.

Different seasons is the book that Stand By Me was based on. I read all the stories in the book multiple times.

Skeleton crew has The Mist and The Jaunt. Two stories that have stuck in my mind and I think about often. It’s been close to thirty years since I’ve read them, but they are both thought provoking enough that I still think about them after all this time.
