Sara Sheridan

The hard fact is that writing is available to readers because of market factors as much as particular writing talent.

To you, perceptive reader, I bequeath my history.

Pamela Glass Kelly

We as authors sign a pact with our readers; they'll go on reading because they trust us to play fair with them and deliver what we've promised.

Temitope Ibrahim

I don't read books to finish them, I read to consume them.

Augustine

It’s not in the book or in the writer that readers discern the truth of what they read; they see it in themselves, if the light of truth has penetrated their minds.

Pamela Glass Kelly

As the hero learns, readers learn too.

Michael Bassey Johnson

Many writers make the mistake of making their readers appear like Lazarus, without any iota of care, throwing down books to readers to crunch as if they are dogs.

Sarah Clarkson

To know yourself as an agent in the story of the world, one able to bring light and goodness in the midst of suffering, is a profoundly empowering knowledge, one that I believe comes to every woman who reads.

Lailah Gifty Akita

The pleasure of reading is the greatest solitude.

By Anonym 19 Sep

Pamela Paul

This is every reader's catch-22: the more you read, the more you realize you haven't read; the more you yearn to read more, the more you understand that you have, in fact, read nothing. There is no way to finish, and perhaps that shouldn't be the goal.

Elena Ferrante

The ‘right reading’ is an invention of academics and critics. Every reader gets from the book he is reading nothing else but his book. The shelves where we line up the volumes we’ve read are deceptive. We have available there only titles, covers, pages. But the books we’ve truly read are phantoms conjured up by reading with no rules.

Authors write books. Readers write authors.

Alberto Manguel

Geschichten sind unser Gedächtnis, Bibliotheken die Lagerstätten für dieses Gedächtnis und Lesen das Handwerk, mit dem wir dieses Gedächtnis neu erschaffen können, indem wir es rezitieren und glossieren, es wieder in unsere eigene Erfahrung rückübersetzen und so auf dem aufbauen, was frühere Generationen für bewahrenswert hielten.

By Anonym 18 Sep

Erica R. Meiners

Some days, it feels unreasonable to expect that an academic text can work as a form of movement assessment or to support social and political change, including the redistribution of power. Perhaps nonfiction & the arts--literature, poetry & film--are potentially much better suited to the work of politically engaging audiences than the staid tools of the academy.

Shon Mehta

Readers can surprise you. Many times, they notice layers in your stories, that even you were not aware of while writing.

Kage Baker

I want you to tell all these people that I wanted more time to spend with them. Tell them I meant to, tell them I wanted to hear what they said and tell them what was on my mind.

By Anonym 20 Sep

Malcolm Bradbury

With my sort of book there's no resolution, because there's no solution. The problems aren't answered in the end because there is no answer. They're problems that are handed on to the reader, not solved for him so that he can go away thinking he lives in a beautiful world. It's not a beautiful world.

Angelo Tiwana Quiamco

Be an active reader; not a passive reader.

Paul Acampora

But in the book," I say, "the mockingbird is supposed to be a symbol of innocence. That's why it's a sin to kill one." "Who says it's a symbol of innocence?" asks Mort. "Teachers," I tell him. "Book reviewers, critics --" "Wikipedia," Elena calls from behind the window display.

Brook Tesla

Are you imperfect, romantically irrational, ridiculously fearless, and utterly illogical? You're my ideal reader, friend, partner. I'm your fan.

Overhyped books are the empty calories of the literary world.

Fantasists aren't natural readers. They grow restive easily.

R. S. Guthrie

The most profound, life-altering gift you can offer the Indie writer you love is to TELL as MANY avid readers as you are able.

As thoroughly as mankind has killed God, the reader has despatched the author.

So who is cruel? You, cruel reader, you are.

Sarah Clarkson

A woman who reads is a woman who knows she must act: in courage, in creativity, in kindness, and often in defiance of the darkness around her. She understands that life itself is a story and that she has the power to shape her corner of the drama.

By Anonym 16 Sep

Virginia Woolf

In your modesty you seem to consider that writers are of different blood and bone from yourselves; that they know more of Mrs Brown than you do. Never was there a more fatal mistake. It is this division between reader and writer, this humility on your part, these professional airs and graces on ours, that corrupt and emasculate the books which should be the healthy offspring of a close and equal alliance between us.

By Anonym 19 Sep

Sarah Weeks

To my faithful readers, because a book is like a pie—the only thing more satisfying than cooking up the story is knowing that somebody might be out there eating it up with a spoon.

By Anonym 18 Sep

Carl Henegan

The magic in writing is not so much using your imagination as it is allowing the reader to uses theirs. When I write a novel I’m not going to hand walk you through each scene. Avid readers tend to have very high IQ’s so I’m constantly aware of, and respect that. I have a tendency to give my readers vivid descriptions of panoramic viewpoints, soft breezes, and the late evening as it scrapes against the emerging night and present this step by suspenseful step. Once I get them to the threshold of that unseen cliff, I shove them off and say, take it from there.

Within the pages of books, I've journeyed to Mandalay, the Milky Way and Santa Fe.

Jonathan Franzen

Simply being a "social isolate" as a child does not, however, doom you to bad breath and poor party skills as an adult. In fact, it can make you hypersocial. It's just that at some point you'll begin to feel a gnawing, almost remorseful need to be alone and do some reading - to reconnect to that community.

Adolf Hitler

Conozco a personas que “leen” muchísimo, libro tras libro y línea a línea, y a las que, sin embargo, no calificaría de “buenos lectores”. Es cierto que estas personas poseen una gran cantidad de “conocimientos”, pero su cerebro no sabe organizar y registrar el material adquirido. Les falta el arte de separar, en un libro, lo que es de valor para ellos y lo que es inútil, de conservar para siempre en la memoria lo que interesa de verdad y desechar lo que no les reporta ventaja alguna.

Ana Claudia Antunes

Dialogues must appear as natural as if coming from effortless writing. It must not sweat. Your beloved readers must not sweat. But here am I, literally sweating, because my characters are literally talking dirty in a steamy sweaty and bloody scene.

Michael Cunningham

Susan was a tough-minded romantic. She wanted to fall in love with a book. She always had reasons for her devotions, as an astute reader would, but she was, to her credit, probably the most emotional one among us. Susan could fall in love with a book in more or less the way one falls in love with a person. Yes, you can provide, if asked, a list of your loved one’s lovable qualities: he’s kind and funny and smart and generous and he knows the names of trees. But he’s also more than amalgamation of qualities. You love him, the entirety of him, which can’t be wholly explained by even the most exhaustive explication of his virtues. And you love him no less for his failings. O.K., he’s bad with money, he can be moody sometimes, and he snores. His marvels so outshine the little complaints as to render them ridiculous.

Write like you have many readers.

Anurag Shourie

Story-telling is a lot like making love. There are rules, yet there are no rules. You must keep your lover engaged; keep pressing the right buttons. Make the reader look forward to your next move with bated breath. Build up the tension and let it explode in the climax. (Anurag Shourie)

If a book doesn’t inspire you to read more, it was not worth read.

Reginald Crundall Punnett

This little book has been written in the hope that it may appeal to several classes of readers. Not infrequently I have been asked by friends of different callings in life to recommend them some book on mimicry which shall be reasonably short, well illustrated without being very costly, and not too hard to understand. I have always been obliged to tell them that I know of nothing in our language answering to this description, and it is largely as an attempt to remedy this deficiency that the present little volume has been written.

Kailin Gow

I'm grateful to my readers. Readers who buy and support authors, especially career authors, are the patrons who fund art, genius, innovation, and creativity. Out of all the books published, there will emerge the next Plato, Socrates, Einstein, Da Vinci, Shakespeare, Benjamin Franklin, Edison, Churchill, Tolstoy, and Tolkien. My readers help with my creative process because they help create the positive and supportive environment that allows me to keep writing the books and series my readers love. Thank You!" - Kailin Gow, Strong.

What's the difference between a private library and a book hoarder?' he wonders. We are both silent before chuckling and answering in unison: 'Faeces.

Claire Amber

The difference between writers and readers is similar to the difference between expressionism and impressionism. Writers want to express themselves and readers want to be impressed.

Enock Maregesi

Novelists and the literary world play an important part in shaping languages. The Swahili they write influence the readers and their languages. The literary obstacle in Tanzania is not that people do not read, but that they don’t read because there are no interesting writers.

Aman Jassal

If words come alive on the page, the writer succeeds in connecting to the reader.
