Quote of the Day: Nora Ephron

“Reading is everything.  Reading makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something, learned something, become a better person.  Reading makes me smarter.  Reading gives me something to talk about later on.  Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself.  Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it’s a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it’s a way of making contact with someone else’s imagination after a day that’s all too real.  Reading is grist.  Reading is bliss.”  Nora Ephron, 1942–2012

Wild for Wilde!

“If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.”  Oscar Wilde, 1854-1900

Jane says it best

“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”  Jane Austen, 1775-1817
