R is for Read

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.

  1. I think my favourite book depends on my mood. Sometimes I think it’s One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovitch by Solzhenitsyn and other days Brideshead Revisited wins. Both were good reads.

  2. I think I will have to give credit to “The Thorn Birds”… this was my FIRST novel and opened up a world of wonderland to me. I was NOT a good reader as a child and even spent 2 years in the same grade because of it. So I must give credit to this book, it lit the light of reading for me. Now i mostly read non-fiction. Just finished the Glass Castle… it was an OMG… book 🙂
