April 30: Inspirational/Thought-Provoking Book Quotes
I’ve done this prompt a couple of times and, to be honest, I think quite a few of them have remained the same…
I’m not great at keeping track of quotes I really like while I’m reading. I’ve been trying recently to get a bit better when I’m using my Kindle and use the Notes feature, but even then I’ve got nothing for physical or audiobooks. I get too caught up in the story, and I’m not big on marking-up.
Do you keep track of favourite quotes? How do you do it?
