Reading is my favorite hobby. When life is stressed, I read a book. When life is relaxed, I read a book. Pulling just a few of my favorite quotes about reading, I will share them with my comments.
“A good book on your shelf is a friend that turns its back on you and remains a friend.” ~Author Unknown
So true. And it doesn’t get mad if I ignore it for a few years. I am a re-reader and eventually come to re-read my all-time favorites. They always welcome me back, no matter how long I have been gone.
“A book is the only place in which you can examine a fragile thought without breaking it, or explore an explosive idea without fear it will go off in your face. It is one of the few havens remaining where a man’s mind can get both provocation and privacy.” ~Edward P. Morgan
Without books, so many subjects would have gone unexplored. Things I didn’t even know I was interested in have expanded my horizons. All because of books.
The worth of a book is to be measured by what you can carry away from it. ~James Bryce
Through books, everyone can learn a new skill, become a better person, learn to love.
“Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book.” ~Author Unknown
This is my favorite quote. I am blessed with many friends, but books can take me to another life like no person can.
What is your all-time favorite book? Mine is Sarah’s Key by Tatiana De Rosna.
