10 Famous People Talk About Reading

Sometimes, I wonder if people think that the only reason I promote reading is because I want to sell my  picture ebooks for children.  The answer to that is a resounding “NO.”  I sincerely believe that reading is the key to becoming the best that one can be.

I’m not alone in thinking this way. Here are quotes from 10 people, famous throughout history, giving us their opinions on reading.

 “Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.”-Harry S. Truman


“Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.”-Richard Steele


“Any book that helps a child to for a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him.” - Maya Angelou


“Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.”— Frederick Douglass


“Children are made readers on the laps of their parents.” — Emilie Buchwald


“There are many little ways to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is the best of all.” — Jacqueline Kennedy


“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.”— Dr. Seuss


“You may have tangible wealth untold. / Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold. / Richer than I you can never be – / I had a mother who read to me.”— Strickland Gillilan


“The ability to read awoke inside me some long dormant craving to be mentally alive.” —Malcolm X


“There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate’s loot on Treasure Island.”— Walt Disney


And one extra – just for fun:

Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read. - Groucho Marx

A Mother’s Gift

You may have tangible wealth untold,

Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold.

“Richer than I you can never be –

I had a mother who read to me.”

— Strickland Gillilan

I came across this quote this morning and it spoke to something deep inside me. I, too, had a mother who read to me.

We lost her to a brain tumor when I was just six years old, but before she was taken away, she taught me to read and instilled in me a love of reading that has lasted my entire life.

I can’t begin to tell you what that did for me. For starters, it gave me a great foundation for school and learning. It also ensured that I never lacked for something to do when I wanted to be entertained.

Knowing how to read, and enjoying it, has enriched my life beyond belief.

Reading has kept me up to date on current happenings and transported me to magical lands far away.  It has helped me to understand people from different backgrounds and cultures. It has made me laugh and made me cry.

Books have been my friends when I was all alone. They have allowed me to leave behind my daily challenges and enter a fantasy world where everything has a happy ending.

When I remember my mother, the thing I remember most is her reading to me. We would sit on the big overstuffed sofa, her arms encircling me and explore the worlds contained in these books together.

Just thinking about that time makes me feel safe and happy. If I could have one wish for every child in the world, I would wish that each one could know the joy of reading.

Why choose an ebook instead of a hard copy?

While it may be fun to hold an actual hard copy of a book and turn the pages, it’s not practical in today’s world.
Hard copies take up space. They get lost. They get torn. They are a problem to take on vacation or to grandma’s house.
To obtain a hard copy, you must either take the time to visit a brick and mortar store or order online and wait for delivery.
You can have an ebook in your hand within a minute or two.
With ebooks, you can store hundreds of books in a tiny ereader or tablet. No getting to grandma’s house or to the babysitter’s and finding that you don’t have the book that your child wants to hear tonight.
