15 Bookworm Quotes That Will Pump Up Your Reading!

How I got into reading was when I was in my school, 7th grade. It was one fine Thursday afternoon when I was sitting in the Library of my school where everyone was reading a magazine.

And to be extremely honest, I picked up a novel just to look “cool”. Yes, exactly that.

So, I picked up the novel and started reading the first few pages of the book and they got me hooked!

My reaction was:

No, wait a minute! This is actually interesting! 😳

Yes, this was my exact reaction!

a book quote; Bookworm quotes
6. I Spent My Life…

“I spent my life folded between the pages of books.
In the absence of human relationships I formed bonds with paper characters. I lived love and loss through stories threaded in history; I experienced adolescence by association. My world is one interwoven web of words, stringing limb to limb, bone to sinew, thoughts and images all together. I am a being comprised of letters, a character created by sentences, a figment of imagination formed through fiction.”

Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me

a book quote; Bookworm quotes
8. Reading is Escape, And…

“Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it’s a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it’s a way of making contact with someone else’s imagination after a day that’s all too real.”

Nora Ephron

9. Isn’t It Odd How…

a book quote; Bookworm quotes
9. Isn’t It Odd How…

“Isn’t it odd how much fatter a book gets when you’ve read it several times?” Mo had said…”As if something were left between the pages every time you read it. Feelings, thoughts, sounds, smells…and then, when you look at the book again many years later, you find yourself there, too, a slightly younger self, slightly different, as if the book had preserved you like a pressed flower…both strange and familiar.”

Cornelia Funke, Inkspell

10. The Best Moments In…

a book quote
10. The Best Moments In…

“The best moments in reading are when you come across something – a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things – which you had thought special and particular to you. Now here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out and taken yours.”

Alan Bennett, The History Boys

a book quote; Bookworm quotes
14. For Some of Us…

“For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfold world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. They show us what community and friendship mean; they show us how to live and die.”

Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life

15. What an Astonishing…

a book quote; Bookworm quotes
15. What an astonishing…

“What an astonishing thing a book is. It’s a flat object made from a tree with flexible parts on which are imprinted lots of funny dark squiggles. But one glance at it and you’re inside the mind of another person, maybe somebody dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, an author is speaking clearly and silently inside your head, directly to you.”

Carl Sagan, Cosmos
