"Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn't carry around for those inevitable dead spot in life."

- S. King

"Do not read, as children do, to amuse yourself, or like the ambitious, for purpose of instruction. No, read in order to live."

- G. Flaubert

"Books are the ultimate Dumpees: put them down and they will wait for you forever; pay attention to them and they will always love you back."

- J. Green, An Abundance of Katherine
