“a little push toward the book”

Books often have quotes in between each chapter, or section, or at the beginning before you get into the  book.  I love them – even if I don’t understand them at the beginning, the hope is that one will by the end of the book.

“Everyone needs a little push toward the book, toward the emotional and practical benefits of reading.  We become more empathetic, better informed, [and] more aware of the…context of our lives.”

-Lisa Lucas, Executive Director, National Book Foundation

I’m writing for 31 days during the month of October.  Catch up on the rest of the series.

      The best one recently was from the new book by Deborah Harkness: “Time’s Convert”. It was a quote by Thomas Paine. It has stuck with me for over two weeks. I instagramed it. Thanks for commenting.
