Carly Chow By Carly Chow Published on August 31, 2017

Not every reader is an author, but every author is a reader first. Their love of reading starts as a young child, continues on into adolescence, and develops into a lifelong passion as an adult. Eventually, their reading habit manifests into a writing career, which in turn fuels the passion of other readers around the world and over the years.

Below is a list of 10 quotes about reading that will, I hope, inspire you to read books often, everywhere, and unabashedly.
