“The train wreck of my life boards in an hour. Can’t be late.”
– Megan Carlton, Private Scandal

I love quotes. On Pinterest I have a whole board of them. I love when someone has solidified a feeling so perfectly in words. And who doesn’t love a one-liner?

“Dreams aren’t real until you make them happen.”
– Heather Tindall, Her Cinderella Complex

One of my favorite things to do when procrastinating is checking out what people highlight on their Kindle for my books. Shelfari has an Extras function where I can see which lines resonated with readers. Knowing I connected to a reader in that way makes me think I’ve done my job.

“Love. It is an incredible sensation. An amazing gift. All consuming and yet as light as a whisper. Once you’ve been in love you don’t ever want to find yourself out of it.”
– Lance Strong, Compromising Positions

Most of the time I like it that way, but every once in a while it’s nice to look over and see that I connected with someone, even if only for the length of that one line. I told them a story that they liked enough to find quotable. Or highlightable for the Kindle folk.

Jenna has new releases for both traditional and e-readers. For Kicks, her business-trip-turns-sexy book, came out a few weeks ago in all ebook formats. Private Scandal, her heiress-makes-her-ex-pay story is available for hand holding now. For more about Jenna Bayley-Burke, check out her website, blog, Twitter (@jennabb), or Pinterest — but her Pinterest has nothing to do with author Jenna, so she cannot be held responsible for pinning addictions!

    I love that first quote! But I think I’d rather be late (0:

    Wow…I had no idea that you could look at things like that (although I don’t have a Kindle so it’s irrelevant to me at this time)…I like quotes as well but I usually write them down somewhere else.

    I just found the Kindle highlights a few weeks back. It’s much fun :) I have a Nook, I wonder if they have something similar. Knowing me, I’ll never find it if they do!

    Interesting quote. I might need to borrow it so I can share it. Good blog.

    I think I could very easily become a pinning addict.

    I do love quotes. Succinct morsels!!
