"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.
