A book worth reading is worth buying.
Reading should be a pleasure, not a chore.
Millions of students now, in all the schools of America, are reading science fiction and especially, thank God, 'The Martian Chronicles.'

I hear people all the time say, well I read through the Bible last year. Well, so what? I'm all for reading through the Bible.
