"Reading is by far the most successful pursuit of happiness." John Grisham

"The role of a writer is not to say what we all can say, but what we are unable to say." Anaïs Nin

"A good book is an event in my life." Stendhal

"A good book makes you want to live in the story. A great book gives you no choice." N.N.
