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. :-)

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
