Quotes About Importance Of Reading Books

You asked if I thought my fiction had changed anything in the culture and the answer is no. Sure, theres been some scandal, but people are scandalized all the time; its a way of life for them. It doesnt mean a thing. If you ask if I want my fiction to change anything in the culture, the answer is still no. What I want is to possess my readers while they are reading my book if I can, to possess them in ways that other writers dont. Then let them return, just as they were, to a world where everybody else is working to change, persuade, tempt, and control them. The best readers come to fiction to be free of all that noise, to have set loose in them the consciousness thats otherwise conditioned and hemmed in by all that isnt fiction. This is something that every child, smitten by books, understands immediately, though its not at all a childish idea about the importance of reading.
— Philip Roth —

When I stepped into the brown-tiled entryway of the Kentwood Public Library, the sunlight flowing down on me from the high windows, I felt a sense of importance. It gratified me to be in a place devoted to books and quiet; I was filled with a sense of hope. Reading to me was fundamental, as fundamental as food. And nothing could be more satisfying than reading a good book while eating a good meal of mi soup, french fries, and a thin cut of steak. I plowed through books as fast as possible in order to read them again.

— Bich Minh Nguyen

Few are sufficiently sensible of the importance of that economy in reading which selects, almost exclusively, the very first order of books. Why, except for some special reason, read an inferior book, at the very time you might be reading one of the highest order?

— John W. Foster
