9. Two fabulous quotes from books you’ve read recently

"Love, love on a spring night. The cotton lace of her nightgrown, the fresh perfume of some lotion or cologne she has used in getting ready for bed, her dark hair and her pale and hardly visible face and the lace of broken and reflected streetlights, scored by the window frames and the folds of the curtains, that lie across both our bodies. The perfect unburdenment of tenderness and disappointment, the perfect response of one body to another, of one answering the other, and the slow journey toward that captivation of our faculties, into that country whose violence remains alien and overwhelming; and then a sweet sleep" John Cheever

10. Tag a number of BookTubers - the total must be divisible by two!
