1. “If you go home with somebody and they don’t have books, don’t fuck them. Don’t sleep with people who don’t read!” John Waters2. “I love books. I love that moment when you open one and sink into it you can escape from the world, into a story that’s way more interesting than yours will ever be.” Elizabeth Scott3. “When I look back, I am so impressed again with the life-giving power of literature. If I were a young person today, trying to gain a sense of myself in the world, I would do that again by reading, just as I did when I was young.” Maya Angelou4. “Great books help you understand, and they help you to feel understood.” John Green5. “The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a novel, must be intolerably stupid.” Jane Austen6. “When I’m really into a novel, I’m seeing the world differently during that time – not just for the hour or so in the day when I get to read. I’m actually walking around in a bit of a haze, spellbound by the book and looking at everything through a different prism.” Colin Firth7. “Here’s to books, the cheapest vacation you can buy.” Charlaine Harris
8. “A common quality I see of people who are successful is that they are voracious readers.” Matt Mullenweg
9. “Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it’s a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it’s a way of making contact with someone else’s imagination after a day that’s all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.” Nora Ephron10. “One must always be careful of books, and what is inside them, for words have the power to change us.” Cassandra Clare
