Book Quotes of the Week

"Used correctly, a book can transport the reader on an instant mental vacation with no jet lag, TSA, or dysentery!" Todd Kruse 

"Since it is so likely that children will meet cruel enemies, let them at least have heard of brave knights and heroic courage." C.S. Lewis

"Read. Everything you can get your hands on. Read until words become your friends. Then when you need to find one, they will jump into your mind, waving their hands for you to pick them. And you can select whichever you like, just like a captain choosing a stickball team." Karen Witemeyer

"Books are like little immortal treats that I get to eat over and over again." N.N.

[If anyone can tell me the originator of this quote, I'd be very thankful and would happily include the name.]

    1. Thanks. It's getting harder and harder to find some good ones that I haven't mentioned, yet. But I'm glad you like them.

  3. The C.S. Lewis quote is vaguely familiar but I haven’t heard the others before. They’re all great!

    1. Thank you, Carol. I do enjoy to go through those quotes and reflect on them. Always just as interesting as reading, I think.
