Overview

Books and Reading: A Book of Quotations by Bill Bradfield

"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, and scores of other writers, political figures, and celebrities.
A handy aid for speech writers and public speakers, this entertaining collection will also delight general readers.
