  4. I love the quote even though I don't totally agree with it. I have found a few books to be too long!

  14. Couldn't be more true and such a perfect way to spend the day. Even better when it's raining or snowing and you can hunker down with a comfy blanket, a great book and a yummy cup of tea!

  19. I agree! Nothing better than a cup of tea and a great book. Especially on a rainy day!

  20. I love that one from Lewis...;)He has some of the best quotes ever, the ones from the Screwtape Letters are the best!!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Ah truer words...I agree with Alyssa, tea and a book are the only way to spend a rainy day

  22. Loving the quote, but I beg to differ to some degree. A co-worker and I were just talking about how almost EVERY new book being released is a tome in length as opposed to days gone by. Not complaining mind you, just like a shorter read now and then. ^_^

  23. I don't need chunkster books either -- just a long, leisurely afternoon reading something.

    ReplyDelete
  24. perfect book lovers quote :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I don't know so much about the tea but the book part so true.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Aww, this quote is brilliant! =)

    ReplyDelete
  27. There really is nothing like a good cup of tea/coffee and a chunky big book!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Change tea to coffee and I am SO THERE.

    ReplyDelete
  29. So true! The bigger the book, the better it is.

  31. I love this one! I can finally read for pleasure now that it is summertime. I just retired from teaching science and all I really had time for was reading science.

  33. I love C.S. Lewis! And this is a great quote. :)
    I started Anna and the French Kiss while I was on the plane to Washington and while I was there I kept sneaking away to read it a little here and there. So, that's definitely a book I wish was a little longer. I didn't expect to like it as much as I did. :)

  34. Being the tea & book lover you are, I can definitely see how you'd love this quote. Love CS Lewis! I'd absolutely agree with the second half for me personally, but since I don't drink tea...maybe hot chocolate? ;o)
