If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking


Writing and reading decrease our sense of isolation. They deepen and widen and expand our sense of life: They feed the soul. When writers make us shake our heads with the exactness of their prose and their truths, and even make us laugh about ourselves or life, our buoyancy is restored. We are given a shot at dancing with, or at least clapping along with, the absurdity of life, instead of being squashed by it over and over again. Its like singing on a boat during a terrible storm at sea. You cant stop the raging storm, but singing can change the hearts and spirits of the people who are together on that ship


Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers

In the 11th century, a Japanese woman known as Murasaki Shikibu wrote “The Tale of Genji,” a 54-chapter story of courtly seduction believed to be the world’s first novel.

Nearly 2,000 years later, people the world over are still engrossed by novels — even in an era where stories appear on handheld screens and disappear 24 hours later.

What exactly do human beings get from reading books? Is it just a matter of pleasure, or are there benefits beyond enjoyment? The scientific answer is a resounding “yes.”

Reading books benefits both your physical and mental health, and those benefits can last a lifetime. They begin in early childhood and continue through the senior years.


The Summer Book, Tove Jansson
Jansson showed her keen understanding of the complex and sometimes dark inner worlds of children in her beloved Moomintroll series. In The Summer Book, she also explores the emotions and experience of adult caregivers - specifically, an elderly woman looking after her six-year-old granddaughter on a small Finnish island. Their story is told in a series of luminous vignettes that highlight the pair's strong personalities, warm relationship, and simple pleasures.


Living in a bookshop is like living in a warehouse of explosives. Those shelves are ranked with the most furious combustibles in the world the brains of men.


I love walking into a bookstore. It's like all my friends are sitting on shelves waving their pages at me.


I'm a reader so when I go to bookstores I need stuff that's going to help me. There a big emptiness there and I want to help fill that through song.


Because whether we're in the middle of the desert or in the heart of a city or the top of a mountain or on an underground train having good stories to keep us company means the whole world.


Bookstores contain the residue of thousands of people who went in there to find an experience a narrative that guided them to a new place or reinforced what they were doing.
