reading booth

I am doing a booth next Friday on good books to read. I have to make a display poster for my booth so I have been looking at some quotes. Here are some of my favorites.

To read is to fly: it is to soar to a point of vantage which gives a view over wide terrains of history, human variety, ideas, shared experience and the fruits of many inquiries.

- A C Grayling,

The ability to read awoke inside me some long dormant craving to be mentally alive.

- Autobiography of Malcolm X, 1964

The reading of all good books is like conversation with the finest men of the past centuries.

- Descartes

Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few are to be chewed and digested.

- Francis Bacon

It is well to read everything of something, and something of everything.

- Lord Henry P. Brougham

Any favorites?
