I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a good book.
-J. K. Rowling
The first thing reading teaches us is how to be alone.
You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read.
It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, or who had ever been alive.
– James Baldwin
Reading give us a place to go when we have to stay where we are.
