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)

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)
