    inspiring quotes about reading

    probably the truest true ever

    I am a part of everything that I have read. Theodore Roosevelt

    The following is not my quote, but I entirely agree! "How to open a new book.... a truly poetic piece. The smell and feel of a new book is wonderful. For me, this is why I will never use a Kindle, no matter how convenient. Part of the pleasure in reading is the physical experience. You don't get that in an electronic book. Sometimes, even in todays fast-paced, multi-media world, we need to take the time to enjoy the simpler, quiet things in life."

    Harper Lee: American writer best known for her 1960 Pulitzer Prize winning novel To Kill a Mockingbird. It is Lee's only published book, but the critically-acclaimed bestseller made quite an impact on its own. Much of the book is autobiographical and details what Lee saw as a child growing up in the South. The powerful story deals with racial inequality and injustice in the Deep South. At 87 she had to sue her agent, who transferred the author’s rights to himself, to get her copyright back.
