“What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. They show us what community and friendship mean; they show us how to live and die.” — Anne Lamott
“Be awesome! Be a book nut!” — Dr. Seuss
“Good books, like good friends, are few and chosen; the more select, the more enjoyable.” — Louisa May Alcott
