My Clippings A.K.A My Kindle Quotes

Hello my dear bookish followers. I thought that a fun post idea would be for me to share with you the quotes from the "My Clippings" page of my Kindle. Basically, whenever you highlight something on your Kindle, the quote ends up here. I thought you might be interested in seeing some of my favourite quotes from my E-books. I think I'll do one of these every few months, depending on if I've been reading much on my Kindle or not.
