Quotes about books

“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, Financial Times (in a review of A History of Reading by Alberto Manguel)

“The smallest bookstore still contains more ideas of worth than have been presented in the entire history of television.”

– Andrew Ross, Professor, Department of Cultural & Social Analysis, New York University

Taken from: ‘Bookshops in the Cultural Life of a Nation’ – The Booksellers Association of the UK & Ireland Ltd
