“You don’t have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.”
-Ray Bradbury

“I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.”
-Groucho Marx

“Reading is a means of thinking with another person’s mind; it forces you to stretch your own.”
-Charles Scribner, Jr.

“Never judge a book by its movie.”
-J. W. Eagan

“A book is a version of the world. If you do not like it, ignore it; or offer your own version in return.”
-Salman Rushdie

“To be a book-collector is to combine the worst characteristics of a dope fiend with those of a miser.”
-Robertson Davies

    Let me second Oscarandre’s words. Sadly, I’ve been hither and yon myself, but I’m trying to find a way to post things on my blog that I end up telling (or emailing) to my family and friends. So far, not much luck! 😀 – Tim
