As I was doing a little organizing this week I found an old notebook where I had started writing down good lines from books. Unfortunately that was many months and books ago, so I've read a lot since then. Here are some of the lines I wrote down, as well as a few I looked up online to help flesh out this post. ;) But I've read the books these are from (except for Pride and Prejudice Zombies which I keep forgetting to get from a friend).
