Today is Book Lover’s Day. I love books, and I love reading. Of course, that’s no surprise to anyone, especially those connected to me on GoodReads.com or who visit the library on Fridays when we get our ILL shipment.
So what is it that has captured so many people, including myself, in a book? Well, take a look at these quotes from BrainyQuote.com to find an answer…
I love books; my suitcases are always full of them. Books and shoes. I read when I am sad, when I am happy, when I am nervous. My favourite British author is Jane Austen, and my favourite American one is John O’Hara.
I love books where you feel you’re having a romance with the writer.
I love my job, and I love books. I read anything, including cereal boxes. I care deeply about what people think of my books, and I memorize my reviews. I love to hear from my readers.
I don’t own a Kindle, no. I love books, they are beautiful objects.
I love old books. They tell you stories about their use. You can see where the fingerprints touched the pages as they held the book open. You can see how long they lingered on each page by the finger stains.
A love of books, of holding a book, turning its pages, looking at its pictures, and living its fascinating stories goes hand-in-hand with a love of learning.
