Book addict (3/4)

“[I] read books because I love them, not because I think I should read them.” - Simon Van Booy

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.” - George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons

“I read like the flame reads the wood.” - Alfred Döblin

“People who say they don't have time to read simply don't want to.” - Julie Rugg, A Book Addict's Treasury

“Be as careful of the books you read, as of the company you keep; for your habits and character will be as much influenced by the former as the latter.”  - Paxton Hood

“I go back to the reading room, where I sink down in the sofa and into the world of The Arabian Nights. Slowly, like a movie fadeout, the real world evaporates. I'm alone, inside the world of the story. My favourite feeling in the world.” - Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

“It is a good rule after reading a new book, never to allow yourself another new one till you have read an old one in between.” - C.S. Lewis

“Everything in the world exists in order to end up as a book.”  - Stéphane Mallarmé
