Product Description

From the Back Cover

"Let blockheads read what blockheads write," suggested Lord Chesterfield. W. H. Auden once said, "Some books are undeservedly forgotten; none are undeservedly remembered." And TV celebrity Jerry Seinfeld noted: "The big advantage of a book is that it's very easy to rewind. Close it and you're right back at the beginning." Over 450 memorable quotes about books and reading fill these pages — with provocative declarations from Mark Twain, Virginia Woolf, Andrew Carnegie, Theodore Roosevelt, James Thurber, Anna Quindlen, and Oprah Winfrey, among others. A handy aid for speech writers and public speakers, this entertaining collection will also delight general readers.
Dover Original.

Format: Paperback
Because of my professional career, I collect quotation books about reading and literacy. And this collection by Bill Bradfield is the best I've found to date. Yes, he's got the standard oldies by folks like Emerson, Erasmus, and Shaw but he's also included up-to-date quotations from the likes of Jerry Seinfeld, Malcolm X, and Stephen King. Granted, he included me in the list but I didn't need it -- I already knew what I said. At the price, it's the best bargain in quote books for anyone in education or libraries.

Wasn't exactly what I thought, but is in excellent condition. It's small and easy to get through.
