Today is the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who!!!!!
Okay, I'll give you a moment to jump and down, maybe scream a little. Happy dancing is also acceptable.
Doctor Who is my favorite TV show, as in I can quote it, I have a TARDIS mug, my friend made me a River Song journal, and Sonic Screwdriver is an app on my iPod. Seriously, I love it and it is celebrating 50 years today! I mean, that's pretty fantastic.
So what on earth (or on Gallifrey) does this have to do with YA books? Well (yes, that was said in Ten's voice), the awesome PenguinTeen Tumblr encouraged bloggers to write their favorite book quotes in Gallifreyan, the language of the time lords.
And guys, it's really cool.
Here are the ones I made using a handy online translator:
The Quote: "Books are the Ultimate Dumpees; put them down and they’ll wait for you forever; pay attention to them and they’ll always love you back." -John Green, An Abundance of Katherines
The Quote: "I know because I read… Your mind is not a cage. It’s a garden. And it requires cultivating."- Libba Bray, Gemma Doyle trilogy
There are a lot of cooler ones (some handdrawn, one tattooed), some of which you can find on my Tumblr. A lot are in the Penguin Teen tag as well, so get looking and happy 50th!!
