50/50 Friday - Favourite Book That's the Most/Least Quotable

It's a shame in this instance that 50/50 Friday is a Friday thing because I would have loved to have started with:

"It must be a Thursday, said Arthur, I never could get the hang of Thursdays."

50/50 Friday is hosted at The Butterfly Reader and at Blue Eye Books.

"What is 50/50 Friday?
Everyone has a favourite and then we also have something we dislike. Like a coin, there are two sides to every question. Example: best sequel you've read/worst sequel you've read. So that's what 50/50 Friday is all about. We will have a new topic every Friday (something bookish of course!). If you have have ideas for this meme don't be scared to let us know!"

This week's topic:
Favourite Book That's the Most/Least Quotable

So I have one book from which I only ever remember one quote but it is a wonderfully evocative one:

"Last night I dreamed I went to Manderley again."

And another book that I have been randomly quoting multiple lines from over at least three decades. I'll limit myself to just a few here:

"Lovely crinkly edges."

"I get this pain in all the diodes down my left-hand side."

"Life? Don't talk to me about life!"

"Time is an illusion. Lunchtime doubly so."

I'll leave you all to work out which book is which!

Do you know where your towel is?


  1. Yes, both of those are very quotable! :)

    1. There's a whole generation of Brits who love to quote Hitch-hikers :-)

  2. Great quotes. I haven't read either of them.

  3. Love the quotes! Now I want to read these books!

    Thanks for linking up!

    1. I hope you get to them. Rebecca is my favourite ever, so far

  4. I love books that have quotes that stay with you. I haven't read either of these books yet but they are on my list!

    1. They're very different to each other, but I love both these books!

  5. Haha I love those quotes! "Lovely crinkly edges" has to be my favorite. It's such a random but somehow perfect quote that I think will stay with me as well :) Thanks for linking up, Stephanie!
