Ten Favorite Book Quotes

Sooooo many options here!!! I decided to go with quotes about books and reading. I mean, I could probably post thousands upon thousands of excellent quotes about books, the power of books, how books change us and uplift us, etc., etc.

Following, are a few quotes about books I cherry-picked at random because I simply couldn’t pick an actual TOP TEN list. It is simply not possible. πŸ˜€
