It has to be said!

"The worth of a book is to be measured by what you can carry away from it."
~James Bryce

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” Dr. Seuss, I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!

“A person's a person, no matter how small.” Dr. Seuss, Horton Hears a Who!

To read a writer is for me not merely to get an idea of what he says, but to go off with him and travel in his company. 
- Andre Gide

Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms. 
- Angela Carter

"Wear the old coat and buy the new book."
- Austin Phelps

"We read to know we are not alone."
- C.S Lewis

"It is better to read a little and ponder a lot, then to read a lot and ponder a little."
