The power of books

Quote

Books are the perfect entertainment. No commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn’t carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life.

Stephen King

Read!

There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate’s loot on Treasure Island.

Keep reading

The book you don’t read won’t help.

The magic of reading

The best moments in reading are when you come across something – a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things – that you’d thought special, particular to you.

And here it is, set down by someone else, a person you’ve never met, maybe even someone long dead.

And it’s as if a hand has come out and taken yours.

Hector, The History Boys

Read a lot

If I read a book that cost me $20 and I get one good idea, I’ve gotten one of the greatest bargains of all time.

Tom Peters

Money spent on books is most likely money well spent!

Priorities!

Awesome quote:

Wear the old coat and buy the new book.

Austin Phelps

The book does not have to be new necessarily, just new to you.

Read!

Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.

Sir Richard Steele

Reading is so important. It is not only an exercise that will bring you advantages, it is also damn enjoyable. Be it educative information or just a novel, you should always read at least one good book! But reading is even more.

How many a man has dated a new era in his life from the reading of a book.

Henry David Thoreau

Think about how books have defined you in the past. Think about books that really changed you, books that really got under your skin. Those books are to be honoured and they are to be found so you must never stop reading everyday! There are enough awesome books to give you more than a lifetime of enjoyable reading time.

Reading will not only give you joy and pleasure but a great advantage in life experience. Yes, making own experiences is worth infinitively more, but you can not experience more than a lifetime by that. Books enhance your experience in a pretty fast time and give you much information you would have never found out yourself.
