I just can't resist Groucho Marx - "Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read. "

Have a great day!

Dear 8th grade students,

I like "We read to know we are not alone." - C. S. Lewis
When I read a thought that really fits my own beliefs, I feel a kinship to the author.  I know someone else feels the way I do so I don't feel so alone.  Do you ever read something and say to yourself, "Yes, right on!" or write a note in the margin if it is your own book? I do, too.

Another quote -
"A book! A book! My kingdom for a book!"
Oh, wait, that was "A Horse! A Horse!"  by Shakespeare.  Just kidding, but sometimes when I'm bored I'd a kingdom, if I had one, for a good book.  Good thing for libraries or I'd be a pauper. :-)

I have a group of 8th grade Language Arts students who want to make a
list of favorite quotes about reading from Utah Librarians. Can you
help by sending yours and I'll pass it along to them. Thanks, Kathy
