Leigh Bardugo
“There had been a time when words had been the only place he could find solace. No book ever lost patience with him or told him to sit still. When his tutors had thrown up their hands in frustration, it was the library that had taught Nikolai military history, strategy, chemistry, astronomy. Each spine had been an open door away whispering, Come in, come in. Here is the land you’ve never seen before. Here is a place to hide when you’re frightened, to play when you’re bored, to rest when the world seems unkind.”
Leigh Bardugo, King of Scars

“As a mere mortal with thirty years of earthly wanderings, I have found books to be the most significant of my findings.”

Anne Bogel
“Sometimes I fantasize about getting my hands on my library records. . . my recurring bookworm dream is to peruse my personal library history like it's a historical document.

My bookshelves show me the books I've bought or been given. . . But my library books come into my house and go out again, leaving behind only memories and a jotted line in a journal (if I'm lucky). I long for a list that captures these ephemeral reads - all the books I've borrowed in a lifetime of reading, from last week's armful spanning back to when I was a seven-year-old kid with my first library card. I don't need many details - just the titles and dates would be fine - but oh, how I'd love to see them.

Those records preserve what my memory has not. I remember the highlights of my grade-school checkouts, but much is lost to time. How I'd love to see the complete list of what I chose to read in second grade, or sixth, or tenth.”
Anne Bogel, I'd Rather Be Reading: The Delights and Dilemmas of the Reading Life

Cornelia Funke
“There is a sort of busy worm,
That will the fairest book deform.
Their tasteless tooth will tear and taint
The poet, patriot, sage or saint,
Nor sparing wit nor learning.
Now, if you’d know the reason why,
The best of reasons I’ll supply:
’Tis bread to the poor vermin.
J. Doraston, quoted by W. Blades”
Cornelia Funke, Inkheart

Sherry Leclerc
“You are dragons, Lord Dreyken! You are not meant to spend your lives hidden in the dark. You are meant to spread your wings and fly, to feel the sun on your scales! Tell me, Lord Dragon, where is your joy?

~Talwyn, The Dragon Shifters at Southgate (coming soon)”
Sherry Leclerc

“Buying, borrowing, or stealing the book is the easy part.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana

“The intensity of childhod reading, the instant and complete absorption in a book - a good book, a bad book, in any kind of book - is something I would give much to recapture”
Lucy Mangan, Bookworm: A Memoir of Childhood Reading

“পোকা নেতিবাচক, অন্যদিকে প্রেমী ইতিবাচক। তাই, যে মানুষটি বইপড়া উপভোগ করেন তাকে ‘বইপোকা’ না ডেকে ‘বইপ্রেমী’ ডাকা উচিত কারণ একটি পোকা বইকে ধ্বংস করে দেয়, কিন্তু একজন প্রেমী বইকে ভালোবাসেন, মূল্য দেন, লালন করেন এবং রক্ষা করেন!”
Md. Ziaul Haque

“Worm has a negative sense whereas lover has a positive one. So, a person who enjoys reading should be called a 'book-lover', not a 'bookworm' because a worm destroys the book, but a lover loves, values, cherishes and protects it!”
Md. Ziaul Haque

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“Writing a book is one of the very few sensible reasons for not having time to read a book.”

Millie Florence
“You can get lost in any library, no matter the size. But the more lost you are, the more things you'll find.”
Millie Florence, Lydia Green Of Mulberry Glen

“I looked at her like her eyes were newly discovered planets. I wanted to know all about them. All their oceans, forests, deserts and their satellites. I had become a satellite myself. I was revolving around her with the hope of getting close to her. Like a moth circling around the fire, I was ready to be burned.”

“To live is to read”
Laiba Jalil

“And if she spent rather more time with her nose in a book than was considered ideal at that time (or any other), well, at least that meant she always had a story to tell.”
