Grandma’s words of wisdom #BookBytes -1

IMG_20180515_065319

I finally finished reading My Grandmother Sends her Regards & Apologies by Fredrik Backman and it is full of interesting quotable quotes. Here’s one that caught my eye and is so full of wisdom.

Granny then said the real trick of life was that almost no one is entirely a shit and almost no one is entirely not a shit. The hard part of life is keeping as much on the not-a-shit side as one can.

The language might not be quite kosher but granny does have a point.

#BookBytes

If you’ve been dropping by here you’ll know I used to do Teaser Tuesdays. Well with my rather disorganised reading/writing/blogging pattern I struggled with getting the post up on Tuesdays. And so I thought I’d just go with #BookBytes. The idea remains the same except I can post any day of the week.

You can join in too. If you stumble upon a quote, a line (or two) or even a passage that leaps out at you demanding to be shared don’t ignore it. Share it on your blog. Leave a link in the comments and I’ll drop by.

      I’d freak if my granny spoke like this :-). But she made sense so she’s kind of forgiven.

    I had to read Grandma’s quote more than once to understand what was that. Book bytes is a good idea and since these days my life is revolving around KidLit books, you know how the quotes will turn out to be. And, for sure koi padne Nahin aayega.
