54 “A room without books is like a body without a soul.” ― Marcus Tullius Cicero

55 “A book will always make you want to come back to find out what happens next.” ― Juan Suhr

56 “Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.” ― Groucho Marx

57 “Many people may read the same book, but no two people will interpret it the same way. When I read I take the picture that the author paints and make it into how I want to see it.” ― Alissa Dobrinsky

58 “It is what you read when you don't have to that determines what you will be when you can't help it.” ― Oscar Wilde

59 “Reading takes me to places I’ve never been and lets me discover new things.” ― Kaori Torres

60 “You know you've read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend.” ― Paul Sweeney

61 “I read because I think it is entertaining. It benefits my writing, and also there is nothing better than relaxing by the pool and reading your favorite book.” ― Tianna Schiappa Pietra

62 “Some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly.” ― Cornelia Funke

63 “A life without expression, creativity, and inspiration is a life without books.” ― Christi Birdsong

64 “A house without books is like a room without windows.” ― Horace Mann

65 “Reading a book can entertain you when you are bored.” ― Christopher Montoya

66 “I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.” ― Groucho Marx

67 “The description of characters and the settings in books draw pictures in your imagination where you fill in the details and make the story your own.” ― Kevin Chardavoyne

68 “Books are mirrors: you only see in them what you already have inside you.” ― Carlos Ruiz Zafón

69 “Sometimes I read because I want to somehow escape daily hassles and slip into another world.” ― Paula Gutierrez

70 “You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, or who had ever been alive.” ― James Baldwin

71 “Reading feels like watching a movie or being on a rollercoaster waiting for the best part to come. When it is finished, it makes you want to watch or ride again.” ― Yves Esslinger

72 “What I say is, a town isn't a town without a bookstore. It may call itself a town, but unless it's got a bookstore it knows it's not fooling a soul.” ― Neil Gaiman

73 “Reading makes me feel free. It takes you to the future, to the past, it may even take you to another dimension! Reading is the best way to make your imagination run wild.” ― Michael Eschmann

74 “A book, too, can be a star, a living fire to lighten the darkness, leading out into the expanding universe.” ― Madeleine L'Engle

75 “I read because reading is essential in life. By learning different lessons from different books you can become a better person.” ― David Overholt

76 “For my own part, if a book is well written, I always find it too short.” ― Jane Austen
