"A friend told me once that she gained comfort from well loved books....that she would read them in hard times and things would some how be better...." I loved the quote and what the last pinner put.
Yes! I also find comfort in re-reading books I've already read. I like being familiar with the characters && knowing how its going to end. Really, I just love books. #geek #bookworm

inspiring quotes about reading
The crack of the spine when you open a new book. The smell of the time worn pages of a 100 year old book. The dust from the book you've read 10 times already. But you love enough to read it again. THAT is why kindles don't this kinda magic.
But e-books have a magic of their own. Now, if someone could install the feel and smell of hard copy books - well, and maybe the illusion of shelves of books surrounding . . no doubt, the future will bring some of this to us. --EDK NOPE NOPE NOPE yeah SOME! i like the dust old book off an old shelf, that new book smell, that paper cut you get when turning the page. No Kindels can give you this, i want the real book, robots are our everything now can't we at least keep classic books? ~ME!
"One glance at a book and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for 1,000 years. To read is to voyage through time.” ― Carl Sagan
“We learned in class, were lectured to about wars and famines, ancient kings and queens, the habits of presidents. But the lectures were cursory. We needed to know what happened, because we were the well-bred daughters of men who could afford to educate us--but not why, or how.”

“I thought of my picture in the Castle. But what would future girls see when they looked at the photograph during their daily comings and goings, peering closely? Not the shade of my hair, rendered colorless. Not anything, really. Just a girl on a horse, like so many other girls.”

“People can lie about their childhoods, they can make up any sort of story and you must believe them, unless you were there with them, unless you saw for yourself. It is a burden to know a person so well. Sometimes a gift, but always a burden.”

“And horses were always a part of my life, a blessing; taking comfort in them had always ben something I’d done by instinct, and it was instinct I never outgrew. I took pleasure in how good I was in the saddle, how well I knew my way around a horse. I was good at something in a way most people are never good at anything in their lives.”
