Reading is a conversation. All books talk. But a good book listens as well.
Anybody who likes writing a book is an idiot. Because it's impossible; it's like having a homework assignment every stinking day until it's done. And by the time you get it in, it's done and you're sitting there reading it, and you realize the 12,000 things you didn't do. I mean, writing isn't fun. It's never been fun.
If it's all instruction, you get annoyed with it and bored, and you stop reading. If it's all entertainment, you read it quite quickly, your heart going pitty-pat, pitty-pat. But when you finish, that's it. You're not going to think about it much afterward, apart from the odd nightmare. You're not going to read that book again.
I try to be a good human being and keep up with what's going on in the world by reading and staying in touch with the current events.
Women are better at reading body language everywhere in the world. As a matter of fact, it's associated with the female hormone estrogen. Women are better at figuring out of tone of voice, reading your face and posture and gesture.
Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms.
Things started to get out of control when I began reading that I was a superstar.
A great book should leave you with many experiences, and slightly exhausted. You should live several lives while reading it.
My hobbies away from horse racing would be reading and painting; I love art.
We need to tell kids flat out: reading is not optional.
Walter Dean Myers
My dad was a football player - a soccer player - for Manchester United, and I loved playing football, but I also happened to be the guy in class who was pretty good at sight reading. My teacher gave me scripts, and I was very comfortable.
I think every parent knows that, like, boys and girls are different. And we just don't take that into account in schools on those things like required reading lists. 'Cause that was my experience, say, with my son, who had to read 'Little House on the Prairie' when he was in third grade.
When I was working on my career, I was very aware of what I had done, what I wanted to do next. I'm having a good time just reading things that might be interesting to do.
There are times my stories become - what I feel - not only accessible to hearing me on television, but they make wonderful reading.
Given how few young people actually read the newspaper, it's a good thing they'll be reading a newspaper on a screen.
The tablet is not mainstream. Reading off the screen is not mainstream.
If the critics are right that I've made all my decisions based on polls, then I must not be very good at reading them.
My family was absolutely supportive. I did have a fear of cold reads because of my dyslexia, but my family's support and reading classes really helped me overcome my fear!
I can't consciously explain how people feel after reading my books. All is too personal.
I'm terrible at reading scripts. I love to read, and I hate reading scripts.
Reading is equivalent to thinking with someone else's head instead of with one's own.
Millions of students now, in all the schools of America, are reading science fiction and especially, thank God, 'The Martian Chronicles.'
Meteorologists are pretty faces reading scripts telling you whether it's going to rain tomorrow.
A book worth reading is worth buying.
I used to take my short stories to girls' homes and read them to them. Can you imagine the reaction reading a short story to a girl instead of pawing her?
