Quotables: From The Day Before by Lisa Schroeder

Tuesday, March 27, 2012



Many times
when I read a book, 
I want to savor
each word, 
each phrase,
each page,
loving the prose
so much, 
I don't want it
to end.

Other times
the story pulls me in,
and I can hardly
read fast enough
the details flying by,
some of them lost
because all that matters
is making sure
the character
is all right
when it's over.

This day
is like the best
of both kinds
of books.

I want to cherish
each moment and yet,
I've got to know
that this character
named Cade
will be okay
when this story
ends.
- Lisa Schroeder, The Day Before
