Book addict (2/4)


“To acquire the habit of reading is to construct for yourself a refuge from almost all the miseries of life.”- W. Somerset Maugham, Books and You

“We read to know that we are not alone.” - William Nicholson

“Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them.” - Lemony Snicket, Horseradish: Bitter Truths You Can't Avoid 


“I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.” - Groucho Marx

“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though.” - J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.” - John Green, The Fault in Our Stars 

“It's not that I don't like people. It's just that when I'm in the company of others - even my nearest and dearest - there always comes a moment when I'd rather be reading a book.”
― Maureen Corrigan, Leave Me Alone, I'm Reading: Finding and Losing Myself in Books
