17. Quote that Inspires You/Gives You the Feels from a Book You've Read:
            "Because, he said, ‘I sometimes have a queer feeling with regard to you - especially when you are near me, as now: it is as if I had a string somewhere under my left ribs, tightly and inextricably knotted to a similar string situated in the corresponding quarter of your little frame. And if that boisterous channel, and two hundred miles or so of land come broad between us, I am afraid that cord of communion will be snapt; and then I've a nervous notion I should take to bleeding inwardly. As for you, - you'd forget me.’ – Mr. Rochester in Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

18. Reading Regret:
            I have too many to count. Not finishing The Three Musketeers, I suppose. I fell in love with Athos, but it wasn’t enough for my teenage self to wade through all the French references that completely confused me.
