As strange as it sounds my life has changed so much (or at least is more enjoyable 🙂 ) since I found out that you can download free books to your iPhone – including classics – which are my favorites.
I’ve found that reading books in this way is the best thing for subway rides, plane trips or before bed (always be sure to put your phone on plane mode so you don’t get radiation from your phone at night!)
So far I’ve read five books since September, and am on my sixth – “War and Peace“.
Here are a couple quotes I’ve liked;
Lord St. Simon: “I understand that you have already managed several delicate cases of this sort, sir, though I presume that they were hardly from the same class of society.”
“No, I am descending.”
“I beg pardon.”
“My last client of the sort was a king.” ” – Sir Arthur Conan Doyle “The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes“
“If no one fought except on his own conviction, there would be no wars,” he said. – Leo Tolstoy “War and Peace”
“They received me and my news as one receives a dog in a game of skittles, [a game played, chiefly in Britain, with wooden pins, typically nine in number, set up at the end of an alley to be bowled down with a wooden ball or disk.]” said he in conclusion. – Leo Tolstoy “War and Peace”
Enjoy! And please tell me your favorite books, quotes and how you like to read them!
Thanks! Much love! xox
