~ William Faulkner ~
Where is human nature so weak as in the bookstore?
~ Henry Ward Beecher ~
If I read a book that impresses me,
I have to take myself firmly in hand,
before I mix with other people;
otherwise they would think my
mind rather queer. (1952)
~ Anne Frank ~
The person who deserves most pity is a lonesome one
on a rainy day who doesn't know how to read.
~ Benjamin Franklin ~
I have good reason to be content,
for thank God I can read and
perhaps understand Shakespeare to his depths.
~ John Keats ~
Books are the treasured wealth of the world
and the fit inheritance of generations and nations.
~ Henry David Thoreau ~
This pile was on my bedside table some days ago. I had to put some back on the shelf as there's no way I'll manage to read all of them any time soon. Do you like any of the quotes? My favourite one is the second. My defences are all down when I'm in a book shop. I could have added a couple of magazines in the photo.What are you reading these days?
PS. Stay tuned; there's a giveaway coming up!
