When I look back, I am so impressed again with the life-giving power of literature. If I were a young person today, trying to gain a sense of myself in the world, I would do that again by reading, just as I did when I was young.

Maya Angelou

My shelf of books! I love them so! They take me where I want to go. Adventure, deeds of every age, Lie captured on the printed page; Through them I hear the swish of seas, The wind in lofty mountain trees; Their magic brings before my gaze Heroes of stirring, ancient days. Here in my chair, through day or night, They lend me wings for daring flight. I love my shelf of books, they are Pathways to sun...and moon... and star.

Katherine Edelman

The serious reader in the age of technology is a rebel by definition: a protester without a placard, a Luddite without hammer or bludgeon. She reads on planes to picket the antiseptic nature of modern travel, on commuter trains to insist on individualism in the midst of the herd, in hotel rooms to boycott the circumstances that separate her from her usual sources of comfort and stimulation, during office breaks to escape from the banal conversation of office mates, and at home to revolt against the pervasive and mind-deadening irrelevance of television.
