Three Day Quote Challenge: Day 1.

typewriter

Hello dear blogging community!

I was nominated for the Three Day Quote Challenge, and as someone who is a big fan of books and literature, this sounds like the perfect task for me. I was already nominated some days ago by the lovely Spiritualjourney17, and now I received another nomination by mariemathilda. As life goes, I was busy in the past days with work and I was already having a bad conscience about not finding the time to start this challenge, but I guess the second nomination means I should really get going. So without further ado, here is my first quote:

‘Not just yet’, he said quietly, and winter settled over the valley.

This is taken from A Whole Life by Robert Seethaler, a book I finished recently. The narrative describes the entire life of a man living in a valley in the alps and is set in the 20th century. If you want to read more about my thoughts on it, I’ve written a review here.
Without wanting to spoil the ending of the book for those of you who might be interested in reading it, I loved the simplicity of this last sentence. The entire book is written in such simple language but still manages to evoke a variety of emotions in the reader. In fact, I found that last sentence so captivating that after finishing it, I held the book open for just a little while longer, because I felt that if I closed to early, I might shatter this fragile image of winter quietly arriving.

I’d like to nominate the following bloggers for today:

The rules are simple:

  1. Post three consecutive days.
  2. You can pick one or three quotes per day.
  3. Challenge three different bloggers per day.

Have fun everyone!
