Settling in for a good read is a terrific feeling. Quotes about reading can help you share your love of the written word with others. Inspiring reading quotes capture the power of a compelling fictional character, the imaginative spark of a rich story, and the illumination that comes from learning about a new time, place, or topic. Written down on a slip of paper, reading quotes even make great bookmarks!
