Books, Books, and More Books Please

I can never get enough books.  When I walk into a bookstore or a library, I feel a sense of wonder and awe.  I am surrounded by so many stories, so much information, and so many things that I can learn.  Where do I begin?  How can I pick just one or two books?

 

The book salesman should be honored, because he brings to our attention, as a rule, the very books we need most and neglect most.  (Confucius)

Finishing a book is like leaving a good friend.  (William Feather)

Don’t judge a book by its thickness either.  (Craig Bruce)

If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.  (Murakami)

Great books help you understand and they help you feel understood.  (John Green)

There are worse crimes than burning books.  One of them is not reading them.  (Joseph Brodsky)

Once you learn to read you will be forever free.  (Frederick Douglas)

  1. Great post Lynn. I can’t tell you how important books are in life, except to say need without them we would be lost…imagine nothing to pick up and read by the Fire, nothing to read “just one more chapter of” before turning out the light! I know many bookworms and am a member of The Outlandish Ladies Book Club, now in its 13th year…it’s a wonderful world sharing books, giving books. I continue to share my love of reading with my grandson so he too enjoys “the book”. The quotes are great too…especially the one by Murakami and William Feather.
