ABC Challenge – A

I saw this over at Thrice Read and since I’ve been having very little time for my blog lately, I thought this would be a fun, short post to do every week.

Basically, for each letter of the alphabet, I will reflect on the most remarkable book I’ve read starting with that letter and mention a book on my TBR starting with that letter that I would like to get to soon.


Most remarkable book

For this, I will go with Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer. I will never miss an opportunity to talk about this series because it is so underrated! More people should read it.

Book on my TBR

For this one, I have a tie between The Archived by Victoria Schwab and American Gods by Neil Gaiman. I’ve had my eyes on both for ages and I’ve yet to get to either of them. But I hope to do so very soon.

A-Z Quotes – A

A-Z Quotes – A

I really love quotes. I have an entire wall in my room back home covered in quotes. So, I thought it would be a nice idea to compile an A-Z list of my favourite quotes and tell you a few words about why I love them. I’m going to do it by author’s first name to begin with and then if I feel like it, I’ll run through the alphabet again using something else because why not. Also, where the quote is from a book, I will use the name of the character who says it, not the author of the book.

I will try to make these a daily thing, but I can make no promises. As I go on, I will be linking to all the quotes here.

Today’s quote:

"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure
about the universe." - Albert Einstein

I’m not sure Einstein actually said this, but the internet seems to attribute it to him (the internet seems to attribute any quote of unknown origins to him) and I really like this quote and Einstein’s name conveniently starts with ‘A’, so I’ll go with it.

Turns out, whoever the author of this quote is, was right to question the infinity of the universe, because it is actually finite, but the quote doesn’t really lose much of its poignancy. Unfortunately, human stupidity really does seem to be a bottomless pit.
