Book addict (1/4)

A selection of pictures from Buzzfeed, with quotes on reading from Goodreads:



“Finally, from so little sleeping and so much reading, his brain dried up and he went completely out of his mind.” - Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Don Quixote

"I'm going to go to my room and read for awhile, okay? I'm fine. I really am fine: I just want to go read for a while.” - John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.” - Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

“Books are a uniquely portable magic.” - Stephen King, On Writing


“If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.” - Stephen King

“Read, read, read. Read everything -- trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You'll absorb it.
Then write. If it's good, you'll find out. If it's not, throw it out of the window.” - William Faulkner

“Reading furnishes the mind only with materials of knowledge; it is thinking that makes what we read ours.”- John Locke

“Reading is the sole means by which we slip, involuntarily, often helplessly, into another's skin, another's voice, another's soul.” - Joyce Carol Oates
