As I’m an author, I thought that a Twitter header showing books would be very apt. I use Canva.com (I derive no benefit, either financial or free stuff from this plug. I just really like the site) to design my book covers, so this is where I went once again.
I found photos of young men and women sitting on the floor of a library with their backs against the bookshelves. The photos were too rectangular to stretch across the elongated header, so I took three side by side to fit into the space.
I then needed text to accompany my header page. What could be more suitable than a saying about books? I googled ‘sayings about books’ and came up with this site - http://ebookfriendly.com/best-quotes-books-reading/
It was getting late and I was tired, but I then found this gem.
Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book – Author unknown.
This set me thinking. In the last few months I have read The Curious Incident of The Dog in the Night by Mark Haddon – the story of a fifteen-year old with Asperger’s Syndrome who is a maths savant.
Previous to that I read Savouring Italy by Michele Scicolone, a recipe book with beautiful photography as well as some history and interesting facts about Italy.
I also recently read Adolf Hitler by John Toland and The Last Days Of Hitler by H.R. Trevor Roper.
As I love history, these last two books are more my usual fare.
No matter. All the books took me into a different world, each was a different experience, each unique. I came away from each with a different experience—except for the two Hitler books which of course were very similar.
So while reading each book, I lived another life!
