Quote by Anne Bronte

I haven’t gotten In as much reading as I had hoped because my whole family went to see The Desolation of Smaug!

Another quote from Agnes Grey:

“Perhaps you are too wise for them. How do you amuse yourself when alone — do you read much?”

“Reading is my favorite occupation, when I have leisure for it and books to read.”

A man after my own heart!

Quote from Agnes Grey by Anne Bronte

Quote: The Hound of the Baskervilles by Arthur Conan Doyle

One of Sherlock Holmes’s defects – if, indeed, one may call it a defect – was that he was exceedingly loathe to communicate his full plans to any other person until the instant of their fulfillment.

The Hounds of the Baskervilles, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
