Cover for a proposed book of quotations by Aberjhani.
The idea of a book of quotations by Aberjhani, a notion which has been floating around even before excerpts from his work started taking on a life of their own all across the Internet on sites like Pinterest, Tumblr, and Twitter, may be on its way to becoming a published reality.
It started initially with responses to his early commentaries on different writers’ posts on AuthorsDen and at Creative Thinkers International. The idea remained mostly an interesting possibility until 2012. That was when the rate of circulated excerpts began increasing weekly and various readers and micro-bloggers expressed a decisive preference for access to themed work in this format.
Blog forum discussions and an increasing number of websites featuring full pages of quotations by the author indicate the time has arrived to make available a pocket-sized book with a more substantial collection than what is currently presented on the Internet. In addition, a number of individuals celebrated as much for their humanitarian outlook as for their cultural artistry have demonstrated the inspirational and educational value of such quotes in the digital age.
Providing a comprehensive collection in book form––drawing from works in nearly every literary genre––represents a logical step forward that could easily benefit readers, booksellers, libraries, and schools. At this point, a publisher for the proposed volume has not been confirmed but the possibility of an author-published collection should probably not be ruled out either.
