Favorite Devouring Books Quotes

1. "Growing up devouring horror comics and novels, and being inspired to become a writer because of horror novels, movies, and comic books, I always knew I was going to write a horror novel."
Author: Colson Whitehead
2. "For the best part of my childhood I visited the local library three or four times a week, hunching in the stacks on a foam rubber stool and devouring children's fiction, classics, salacious thrillers, horror and sci-fi, books about cinema and origami and natural history, to the point where my parents encouraged me to read a little less."
Author: David Nicholls
3. "A sign of the times: there are no longer any chairs in the bookshops along the embankments. [Noël] France was the last bookseller who provided chairs where you could sit down and chat and waste a little time between sales. Nowadays books are bought standing. A request for a book and the naming of the price: that is the sort of transaction to which the all-devouring activity of modern trade has reduced bookselling, which used to be a matter for dawdling, idling, and chatty, friendly browsing."
Author: Jules De Goncourt
4. "The term 'role model' is so odious, but the truth is it's a very strong writer indeed who gets by without a model kept somewhere in mind. I think of Keats. Keats slogging away, devouring books, plagiarizing, impersonating, adapting, struggling, growing, writing many poems that made him blush and then a few that made him proud, learning everything he could from whomever he could find, dead or alive, who might have something useful to teach him."
Author: Zadie Smith

Jag vill ta hans hand och trycka den mot mitt hjärta, precis där det värker som mest. Jag vet inte om ett sådant tilltag skulle bota smärtan eller kanske få mitt hjärta att brista helt, men oavsett vilket skulle den ihållande, hungriga väntan vara över."
Author: Ally Condie
