Quote of the Week – Joseph Brodsky and Contest! OOGA!

11 Mar

This week’s quote was sent to me by Michelle Isenhoff, author of the great children’s historical fiction novels  ”The Color of Freedom,” “The Candle Star,” “Broken Ladders,” and her new  fantasy fiction book”The Quill Pen.” It is by Joseph Brodsky. He was a Russian poet and was awarded the 1987 Nobel Prize in Literature.

“There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them.” – Joseph Brodsky

    Love the quote. Is Darth Vader your pet? I hope you’ll make him mind. I’ll have to stop by to see your sister’s pet too.

      🙂 Yes Darth Vader isn’t too happy that’s why he’s on a leash! Thank you for stopping by Josie’s blog!

    This is another of my favorite book related quotes. And as far as I’m concerned, anything that has Darth Vader in it automatically wins. 😉

      YAY! Darth Vader IS a WINNER (I hope)!!! If he doesn’t win he may throw a tantrum and then look out for the lightsaber.
