A Quote by Sherman Alexie on library, books, readers, and comparison

Corliss had never once considered the fate of library books. She'd never wondered how many books go unread. She loved books. How could she not worry about the unread? She felt like a disorganized scholar, an inconsiderate lover, an abusive mother, and a cowardly soldier.

A Quote by Sherman Alexie on books, reading, and library

Corliss wondered what happens to a book that sits unread on a library shelf for thirty years. Can a book  rightfully be called a book if it never gets read? If a tree falls in a forest and gets pulped to make paper for a book that never gets read, but there's nobody there to read it, does it make a sound?

A Quote by Andrew Carnegie on library and democracy

"There is not such a cradle of democracy upon the earth as the Free Public Library, this republic of letters, where neither rank, office, nor wealth receives the slightest consideration."

A Quote by zaadzster_1 on books and library

My wife calls me the Imelda Marcos of books. As soon as a book enters our home it is guaranteed a permanent place in our lives. Because I have never been able to part with even one, they have gradually accumulated like sediment.

Michael Moritz
