Cicero - 'A room without books is like a body
without a soul'

Daniel Boorstein - 'A wonderful thing about a
book, in contrast to a computer screen, is that
you can take it to bed with you'

Bertrand Russell - 'there are two motives for
reading a book: one, that you enjoy it; the
otherthat you can boast about it'
