I’ve just recently begun pulling together all the various quotations about books and reading that I’ve collected over the years. Here are a few of my favorites; if you have any quotations that you’ve found and particularly like, I’d love to see them. You can send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Entry #2 - Jenny McPhee. No Ordinary Matter
"Maybe everybody is a novel…I read the other day about how they’ve been able to encode all of Dickens onto one strand of human DNA, and I started having a science-fiction fantasy about how our DNA is actually literature and that humankind is some other civilization’s library.”
Entry #1 - Olen Steinhauer's – The Nearest Exit
"Despite the measure of paranoia, her exile was refreshing, because she finally had time to read, which she mistakenly devoted to Imre Kertesz. With a secret agent looking for her and Henry gone, reading the Nobel Prize winner just made her think of suicide."
