“The time to read is any time: no apparatus, no appointment of time and place, is necessary. It is the only art which can be practised at any hour of the day or night, whenever the time and inclination comes, that is your time for reading; in joy or sorrow, health or illness.”

I was all over the place with this one. I'm just going to refer you to Jessica Day George's review. She pretty much said what I feel only much better than I can: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...
Luann and 18 other people liked Jessica's review of Afterworlds:
Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld
"This is a big, fascinating, ambitious book, and if anyone could pull something like this off you'd think it would be Westerfeld. But . . . I was really a little shocked at the things that just didn't work for me. I wondered if it was just me, but..." Read more of this review »

Think Big by Ben Carson
" What an admirable man Dr. Ben Carson is! I accept and believe the principles he teaches and lives by. This book is loaded with great standards to guide us through our lives. I particularly like his acrostic for the title of his book Think Big:

This is a much longer story than the other "belling the cat" story I've read: But Who Will Bell the Cats?. This is quite a bit longer than your typical picture book. It is perfect for children who are ready for chapter books but still want a picture ...more
Call the Midwife by Jennifer Worth
"It was an incredible read that was marred by an obscenely disgusting chapter right smack dab in the middle that made me have to question whether I should continue or not. I did continue after skimming past the incredibly gross part and was glad th..." Read more of this review »

“And then she poked him again. Not because he wasn't paying attention but because when she did it the first time she found she liked it. Mrs. Bunny might think she was getting away with this, but Mr. Bunny was silently counting the pokes to pay her back later.”
Polly Horvath

Christopher Morley
“When you sell a man a book you don’t sell him just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue - you sell him a whole new life. Love and friendship and humour and ships at sea by night - there’s all heaven and earth in a book, a real book I mean.”
Christopher Morley, Parnassus on Wheels

Walter Tevis
“I feel free and strong. If I were not a reader of books I could not feel this way.”
Walter Tevis

Leigh Hunt
“I entrench myself in books equally against sorrow and the weather.”
Leigh Hunt

Christopher Morley
“I think reading a good book makes one modest. When you see the marvelous insight into human nature which a truly great book shows, it is bound to make you feel small--like looking at the Big Dipper on a clear night, or seeing the winter sunrise when you go out to collect the morning eggs. And anything that makes you feel small is mighty good for you.”
Christopher Morley, Parnassus on Wheels
