I usually don’t post things here and on the Facebook page but I couldn’t help it with this post! So here goes the quote I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
“I still love books. Nothing a computer can do can compare to a book. You can’t really put a book on the Internet. Three companies have offered to put books by me on the Net, and I said, ‘If you can make something that has a nice jacket, nice paper with that nice smell, then we’ll talk.’ All the computer can give you is a manuscript. People don’t want to read manuscripts. They want to read books. Books smell good. They look good. You can press it to your bosom. You can carry it in your pocket.” – Ray Bradbury
“If this nation is to be wise as well as strong, if we are to achieve our destiny, then we need more new ideas for more wise men reading more good books in more public libraries. These libraries should be open to all—except the censor. We must know all the facts and hear all the alternatives and listen to all the criticisms. Let us welcome controversial books and controversial authors. For the Bill of Rights is the guardian of our security as well as our liberty.”
Dance wthout a care in the world, smile and laugh at nothing! It makes life a little less serious and people will wonder what is so funny, and only you will know the answer!

“Think before you speak. Read before you think.”
Guess what? Guess what? It’s reading quote, yeah yeah;
“When you sell a man a book you don’t sell him just 12 ounces of paper and ink and glue – you sell him a whole new life.”
– Christopher Morley
Oh wouldn’t that be cool?
OH YEAH it’s QUOTE TIME! OH YEAH, OH YEAH! And it isn’t even my birthday- whoo hoo……
“Reading is the sole means by which we slip, involuntarily, often helplessly, into another’s skin, another’s voice, another’s soul.” — Joyce Carol Oates
This picture is just priceless! Yes it is!
So sorry that I didn’t post on Monday, the site wasn’t working. So here goes,
“Isn’t it odd how much fatter a book gets when you’ve read it several times?” Mo had said…”As if something were left between the pages every time you read it. Feelings, thoughts, sounds, smells…and then, when you look at the book again many years later, you find yourself there, too, a slightly younger self, slightly different, as if the book had preserved you like a pressed flower…both strange and familiar.”
― Cornelia Funke
Sometimes I wonder am I the only one out here that enjoys my quotes? I hope not, because I kill me. Ha-Ha-He-He!
Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light.
