To celebrate, SA4QE is inviting fans of the book to share your favourite quotes with your friends and complete strangers alike.
The traditional method is to write your quote on a sheet of paper (yellow if you can get it) and leave it in a public place for others to chance upon, while with the power of social media you can also post your quote as your Facebook status update, tweet it on Twitter or post it on your blog.
Any quotes that the SA4QE webmaster picks up either by chance or design will be replicated on this site, so if you'd rather not leave it to chance please post your quote as a comment on this very post below or email it to sa4qemail [at] gmail [dot] com
This site will be updated throughout the day, so keep an eye on it and also on the Twitter feed.
If you're looking for inspiration see this wonderful article on Riddley Walker by author David Mitchell (Cloud Atlas etc) on the Guardian site, written especially for the 2005 Hoban convention.
