Oh, For The Love Of Books.

Sometimes there are not enough hours in the day.

" That moment when you are reading a book, and the whole world around you fades away."
" Book Hangover: Inability to start a new book because you're still living in the last book's world. "
" A room without books is like a body without a soul. "
" A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. "
George R.R. Martin
" People can lose their lives in libraries. They ought to be warned. "
Saul Bellow
" All good and true book lovers practice the pleasing and improving avocation of reading in bed
...No book can be appreciated until it has been slept with and dreamed over. "

Eugene Field
" There is no mistaking a real book when one meets it. It's like falling in love. "
Christopher Morley
" A house without books is like a room without windows. No man has a right to bring up his children without surrounding them with books, if he has the means to buy them. It is a wrong to his family. He cheats them! Children learn to read by being in the presence of books. The love of knowledge comes with reading and grows upon it. "
Horace Mann, Life and works of Horace Mann, Volume 3
" There is no friend as loyal as a book. "
Ernest Hemingway
