“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
— Dr. Seuss
The power of a written word has been known for centuries. From the first Sumerian literary works over 4500 years ago, through the Bible, English classics and the newest fantasy reads, one can get lost in words and escape the sometimes chaotic world that we live in.
“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one.”
— George R.R. Martin.
