Oscar Wilde
“It is what you read when you don't have to that determines what you will be when you can't help it.”
Oscar Wilde

Mortimer J. Adler
“In the case of good books, the point is not to see how many of them you can get through, but rather how many can get through to you.”
Mortimer J. Adler

Betty MacDonald
“There’s nothing as cozy as a piece of candy and a book.”
Betty MacDonald, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle's Magic

John Bellairs
“He held the book up to his nose. It smelled like Old Spice talcum powder. Books that smelled that way were usually fun to read. He threw the book onto his bed and went to his suitcase. After rummaging about for awhile, he came up with a long, narrow box of chocolate-covered mints. He loved to eat candy while he read, and lots of his favorite books at home had brown smudges on the corners of the pages.”
John Bellairs, The House with a Clock in Its Walls

Mahatma Gandhi
“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is like an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”
Mahatma Gandhi

Deirdre Keating Couldn't agree more with your 1 star review of Captain Underpants...my 5 yr old keeps asking for it (having discovered it at school). Raising all boys, I think I'll have enough of farting humor that there is no need to encourage it and enough great books we haven't read yet. I feel a little less guilty after seeing that one star:-)
