Word Magic: Celebrating National Book Month

Posted by Abigail Barcus on

Each October, National Book Month allows us to celebrate and expand our love of reading. As the warm temperatures start to leave us for the winter, it’s the perfect time to put on some cozy slippers, have a cup of tea and curl up on the couch with a good book. As we take this month to appreciate the importance of reading, writing and literature, we also want to take the time to honor the country’s best books and authors. 
“When I look back, I am so impressed again with the life-giving power of literature. If I were a young person today, trying to gain a sense of myself in the world, I would do that again by reading, just as I did when I was young.” 
— Maya Angelou 
“My alma mater was books, a good library…. I could spend the rest of my life reading, just satisfying my curiosity.” 
— Malcolm X 
“I cannot remember the books I’ve read any more than the meals I have eaten; even so, they have made me.” 
— Ralph Waldo Emerson 
“Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.” 
— Mark Twain
“To learn to read is to light a fire; every syllable that is spelled out is a spark.” 
— Victor Hugo 
“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read.” 
— James Baldwin
