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.

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.

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.

Reading is so damn important!

Yes, personal experience weighs more than indirect, theoretical experience. But you do not have the time to experience everything for yourself.

You can improve your life drastically by reading, by reading a lot!
