"Some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly." 
-Francis Bacon

Miss a meal if you have to, but don't miss a book.
                                                                                                                                                                                                  -Jim Rohn

The odd thing about people who had many books was how they always wanted more." 
— Patricia A. McKillip (The Bell at Sealey Head)

“Second hand books are wild books, homeless books; 

they have come together in vast flocks of variegated feather, 

and have a charm which the domesticated volumes of the library lack.”

                                                                                                                                                                                       - Virginia Woolf
“Books can be possessive, can't they? You're walking around in a bookstore and a certain one will jump out at you, like it had moved there on its own, just to get your attention. Sometimes what's inside will change your life, but sometimes you don't even have to read it. Sometimes it's a comfort just to have a book around. Many of these books haven't even had their spines cracked. 'Why do you buy books you don't even read?' our daughter asks us. That's like asking someone who lives alone why they bought a cat. For company, of course.”                                                                                                        ― Sarah Addison Allen, The Sugar Queen
