Recent uses of Book Darts, part I

“In order to become a Sacred Wood, a wood must be tangled and twisted like the forests of the Druids, and not orderly like a French garden.” – Umberto Eco on ‘cult’ texts, Six Walks in the Fictional Woods

“Likewise, to read fiction means to play a game by which we give sense to the immensity of things that happened, are happening, or will happen in the actual world. By reading narrative, we escape the anxiety that attacks us when we try to say something true about the world.” – Umberto Eco, Six Walks in the Fictional Woods

“But you know as well as I, patriotism is a word; and one that generally comes to mean either my country, right or wrong, which is infamous, or my country is always right, which is imbecile.” – Patrick O’Brian qua Stephen Maturin, Master and Commander

Oooh, I absolutely looooove Book Darts!


Book Darts (and Page Points) are wonderful things, aren’t they!?! From the quotes you have shared they seem to be serving you quite well.

You know… I actually never thought of using them like that… quite a “duh!” moment, for me! :) I believe I’ll get much use out of mine now that I work at a book store. :)

Quick! To the book shelf!!!

Heh! I love usin’ ‘em for quotes. It can be good for collecting passages for essays, too.
