BookRags adds BrainyQuote to its online ad operation, an education and book-reference site that is owned by Ambassadors Group, has signed a marketing arrangement with BrainyQuote, a website that provides quotes for students and the public.

Ambassadors Group, based in Spokane, provides education travel for students and others. It acquired BookRags in 2008.

BookRags has created a web advertising network, BookRags Media, that allows partner companies a way to direct ads to the teen and young adult audience using its site for education and research.

BookRags Media did a similar deal earlier, forming a partnership with eNotes, an online education resource site. 

BrainyQuote does pretty much what it says it does, offer up a vast collection of known quotes and remarks by noted authors or celebrities. Since Patty Duke is in the news around Spokane lately, we looked for her quotes there.

And we found this:

“I tell people to monitor their self-pity. Self-pity is very unattractive.”
Patty Duke
