Readers Advisory quotes by Alyssa Cole
#1. Excuse me?"
The librarian looked up again.
"I need help now. I need to print this article and . . . do you have any books about dukes?"
The librarian's eyes went wide and she rubbed her hands together with glee. "We have a fantastic romance section," she said. "Do you need recommendations? How do you like your dukes? Grumpy? Tortured? Alpha, beta, or alpha in the streets, beta in the sheets?"
"Actually, I meant nonfiction," Portia said glumly.
The librarian sighed. "Aye. Just a warning, love - the non-fic dukes are not nearly as fun. #Quote by Alyssa Cole
Readers Advisory quotes by Kristin Cashore

Readers Advisory quotes by Vasily Grossman
#3. It is the writer's duty to tell the terrible truth, and it is a reader's civic duty to learn this truth. To turn away, to close one's eyes and walk past is to insult the memory of those who have perished. #Quote by Vasily Grossman

#4. Readers regularly ask what can go wrong but almost never what could positively surprise. #Quote by Kenneth Fisher
Readers Advisory quotes by Kate Morton
#5. I probably coughed self-pityingly in response, little aware that I was about to cross a tremendous threshold beyond which there would be no return, that in my hands I held an object whose simple appearance belied its profound power. All true readers have a book, a moment, like the one I describe, and when Mum offered me that much-read library copy mine was upon me. #Quote by Kate Morton
Readers Advisory quotes by Jillian Medoff
#6. To be honest, I want readers to be wrung out. As a novelist, I don't have a political agenda or specific philosophy; I'm trying to create a gut-wrenching, intimate, memorable experience. #Quote by Jillian Medoff
Readers Advisory quotes by Jan Tschichold
#7. Readers want what is important to be clearly laid out; they will not read what is too troublesome. #Quote by Jan Tschichold
Readers Advisory quotes by Frank Herbert
#8. Dune Messiah, Frank Herbert's first sequel to Dune, was published in 1969. In that book, he flipped over what he called the "myth of the hero" and showed the dark side of Paul Atreides. Some readers didn't understand it. Why would the author do that to his great hero? In interviews, Dad spent years afterward explaining why, and his reasons were sound. He believed that charismatic leaders could be dangerous because they could lead their followers off the edge of a cliff. #Quote by Frank Herbert
Readers Advisory quotes by J.C. Ryle
#9. Here, in short, is the great danger of reading most novels, romances, and works of fiction. The greater part of them give a false or incorrect view of human nature. They paint their model men and women as they ought to be, and not as they really are. The readers of such writings get their minds filled with wrong conceptions of what the world is. Their notions of mankind become visionary and unreal. They are constantly looking for men and women such as they never meet, and expecting what they never find. #Quote by J.C. Ryle
Readers Advisory quotes by Suchet Chaturvedi
#10. Everyone who's born has a mysterious life path to follow. We must live to find that one reason to live #Quote by Suchet Chaturvedi
Readers Advisory quotes by James Randolph Adams
#11. Millions of dollars' worth of advertising shows such little respect for the reader's intelligence that it amounts almost to outright insult. #Quote by James Randolph Adams
Readers Advisory quotes by Stephen Clarke
#12. James II's second wife, an Italian Catholic princess called Mary (at the time, there was an edict whereby all female royals were to be called Mary to confuse future readers of history books), #Quote by Stephen Clarke
Readers Advisory quotes by Michelle Alexander
#13. The growing consensus among experts was perhaps best reflected by the National Advisory Commission on Criminal Justice Standards and Goals, which issued a recommendation in 1973 that "no new institutions for adults should be built and existing institutions for juveniles should be closed."17 This recommendation was based on their finding that "the prison, the reformatory and the jail have achieved only a shocking record of failure. There is overwhelming evidence that these institutions create crime rather than prevent it. #Quote by Michelle Alexander
Readers Advisory quotes by Loren Eiseley
#14. Some men are daylight readers, who peruse the ambiguous wording of clouds or the individual letter shapes of wandering birds. Some, like myself, are librarians of the night, whose ephemeral documents consist of root-inscribed bones or whatever rustles in the thickets upon solitary walks. #Quote by Loren Eiseley
Readers Advisory quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#15. Just as the historian can teach no real history until he has cured his readers of the romantic delusion that the greatness of a queen consists in her being a pretty woman and having her head cut off, so the playwright of the first order can do nothing with his audience until he has cured them of looking at the stage through the keyhole, and sniffing round the theatre as prurient people sniff round the divorce court. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Readers Advisory quotes by John Ciardi
#16. Good writing tends to present evidence rather than judgments. When the evidence is well presented, the reader's judgments will agree with those implicit in the writing. But nothing is more disastrous to the communication between writer and reader than a series of implicit judgments with which the reader cannot agree or which he finds to be simply silly or for which he is given no evidence he can respect. #Quote by John Ciardi
Readers Advisory quotes by G. Willow Wilson
#17. Comic book readers tend to be pretty secular and anti-authoritarian; nothing is above satire in their eyes. #Quote by G. Willow Wilson
Readers Advisory quotes by Gloria Steinem
#18. A portable friend to all readers-especia lly but not only women-who need to learn that the Golden Rule works only if it's reversible: We must learn to treat ourselves as well as we wish to treat others. #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Readers Advisory quotes by Kate Zambreno
#19. The memoir by women, read by female readers, is considered a market form, not "great literature." #Quote by Kate Zambreno
Readers Advisory quotes by Saul Bellow
#20. A style of this sort will seem to modern readers marred by classical stiffness
"Truth," "Knowers," "the Good," "Man"
but we can by no means deny that behind our objection to such language is a guilty consciousness of the flimsiness, and not infrequently the trashiness, of our modern talk about "values. #Quote by Saul Bellow
Readers Advisory quotes by K. Sean Harris
#21. A writer's work is never done, unless he or she has no readers. #Quote by K. Sean Harris
Readers Advisory quotes by Peggy Barnes
#22. Memoirists collect experiences in an attempt to capture the fluttery thing we call life.
---from Blog-"Readers, Writers and Pumpkin Pie #Quote by Peggy Barnes
Readers Advisory quotes by Stanley Krippner
#23. The ancient Greek philosopher Epictetus taught his students that what happens to them is not as important as what they believe happens to them. In this engaging and provocative book, Eldon Taylor provides his readers with specific ways in which their beliefs can lead to success or failure in their life undertakings. Each chapter provides nuggets of wisdom as well as road maps for guiding them toward greater self-understanding, balance, responsibility, and compassion. #Quote by Stanley Krippner
Readers Advisory quotes by Orson Scott Card
#24. At some point, every science fiction and fantasy story must challenge the reader's experience and learning. That's much of the reason why the genre is so open to experimentation and innovation that other genres reject
strangeness is our bread and butter. Spread it thick or slice it thin, it's still our staff of life. #Quote by Orson Scott Card
Readers Advisory quotes by Jasper Fforde
#25. Well, each interpretation of an event, setting or character is unique to each of those who read it because they clothe the author's description with the memory of their own experiences. Every character they read is actually a complex amalgam of people they've met, read or seen before - far more real than it can ever be just from the text on the page. Because every reader's experiences are different, each book is unique for each reader. #Quote by Jasper Fforde
Readers Advisory quotes by Stephen Greenblatt
#26. The bookworm - "one of the teeth of time," as Hooke put it - is no longer familiar to ordinary readers, but the ancients knew it very well. #Quote by Stephen Greenblatt
Readers Advisory quotes by Shilpi
#27. There is nothing more amazing than being with the one you love. #Quote by Shilpi
Readers Advisory quotes by Jeff Bezos
#28. For people who are readers, reading is important to them. #Quote by Jeff Bezos
Readers Advisory quotes by Chevy Stevens
#29. It feels wonderful to get praise from other authors who I admire, but with each new book, my confidence is always the thing I struggle with the most until I start getting positive feedback from readers. #Quote by Chevy Stevens
Readers Advisory quotes by Martin Amis
#30. Don't dumb down; always write for your top five percent of readers. #Quote by Martin Amis
Readers Advisory quotes by Patrick DeWitt
#31. 'The Sisters Brothers' has endeared so many prize juries because the Western format has more of a broad appeal and is familiar to readers. #Quote by Patrick DeWitt
Readers Advisory quotes by Sonya Hartnett
#32. More than this, I believe that the only lastingly important form of writing is writing for children. It is writing that is carried in the reader's heart for a lifetime; it is writing that speaks to the future. #Quote by Sonya Hartnett
Readers Advisory quotes by Donalyn Miller
#33. Consuming a literary diet built exclusively on the classics does not provide students with the opportunity to investigate their own personal tastes in reading material and narrows their perspective of reading to the school task of hyper-analyzing literature. There needs to be a balance between the need to teach students about literature and the need to facilitate their growth as life readers. #Quote by Donalyn Miller
Readers Advisory quotes by Jonathan Haidt
#34. We should not expect individuals to produce good, open-minded, truth-seeking reasoning, particularly when self-interest or reputational concerns are in play. But if you put individuals together in the right way, such that some individuals can use their reasoning powers to disconfirm the claims of others, and all individuals feel some common bond or shared fate that allows them to interact civilly, you can create a group that ends up producing good reasoning as an emergent property of the social system. This is why it's so important to have intellectual and ideological diversity within any group or institution whose goal is to find truth (such as an intelligence agency or a community of scientists) or to produce good public policy (such as a legislature or advisory board). #Quote by Jonathan Haidt
Readers Advisory quotes by Will Schwalbe
#35. I will never be able to read my mothers favourite books without thinking of her - an when I pass them on or recommend them, I'll know that some of what made her goes with them; that some of my mother will live on in those readers, readers who may be inspired to love the way loved and do their own version of what she did in the world. #Quote by Will Schwalbe
Readers Advisory quotes by Caroline Leavitt
#36. All writers know how important a good title is. It's the first thing readers see, along with a knock-your-socks-off cover - a seductive 'come hither' for the story within. #Quote by Caroline Leavitt
Readers Advisory quotes by Richard Stallman
#37. If ebooks mean that readers' freedom must either increase or decrease, we must demand the increase. #Quote by Richard Stallman
Readers Advisory quotes by Nella Larsen
#38. Authors do not supply imaginations, they expect their readers to have their own, and to use it #Quote by Nella Larsen
Readers Advisory quotes by Stephanie Laurens
#39. Readers really want to come back to an author; they do not want a one-book wonder. That is all very well, but to be career author, you have to be prepared to write one really good book and then write another really good book and keep feeding your readers. You build your audience over a long time. #Quote by Stephanie Laurens
Readers Advisory quotes by Bobby Ghosh
#40. 'Time' is an internationalist publication catering to internationalist readers who are not only interested in their own backyard. #Quote by Bobby Ghosh
Readers Advisory quotes by Dave Gibbons
#41. I think readers are always patient. Look at the 'Harry Potter' series. Some have given up on this generation of kids as game and TV addicts, but lots of people spend lots of time patiently reading through hundreds of pages of dense prose. I think reading a comic by comparison is a lot more immediate. #Quote by Dave Gibbons
Readers Advisory quotes by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
#42. This is a place of mystery, Julián, a sanctuary. Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens. This place was already ancient when my father brought me here for the first time, many years ago. Perhaps as old as the city itself. Nobody knows for certain how long it has existed, or who created it. . . . When a library disappears, or a bookshop closes down, when a book is consigned to oblivion, those of us who know this place, its guardians, make sure that it gets here. In this place, books no longer remembered by anyone, books that are lost in time, live forever, waiting for the day when they will reach a new reader's hands. . . . in truth books have no owner. Every book you see here has been somebody's best friend. Now they only have us . . . #Quote by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Readers Advisory quotes by Alan Bold
#43. The poet lives as long as his lines are imprinted on the minds of his readers. #Quote by Alan Bold
Readers Advisory quotes by Dan Alatorre
#44. In the book (Savvy Stories) you see some very real, very personal moments. The first week of Savvy's life was the longest week of ours. We spent five days in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) worrying that our newborn daughter might die. It was touch and go for a while, and it was extremely difficult to write about. Chapter two gets a lot of people crying. But because we put that honesty out there, readers said "Okay, I can trust this guy." Then they were better able to laugh with us, too. #Quote by Dan Alatorre
Readers Advisory quotes by Jennifer A. Nielsen
#45. I think it's so important for young readers to find a book or series that ignites their passion for reading, especially boys, whose interest in reading wanes as they grow older. #Quote by Jennifer A. Nielsen
Readers Advisory quotes by Stephan Jenkins
#46. I don't really believe in palm readers and crystal balls and tarot cards, but I respond to the need for them. #Quote by Stephan Jenkins
Readers Advisory quotes by Sharon Kay Penman
#47. I feel that historical novelists owe it to our readers to try to be as historically accurate as we can with the known facts. Obviously, we have to fill in the blanks. And then in the final analysis, we're drawing upon our own imaginations. But I think that readers need to be able to trust an author. #Quote by Sharon Kay Penman
Readers Advisory quotes by Kingman Brewster, Jr.
#48. The newspaper fits the reader's program while the listener must fit the broadcaster's program. #Quote by Kingman Brewster, Jr.
Readers Advisory quotes by Bill Bryson
#49. Shakespeare 'never owned a book,' a writer for the New York Times gravely informed readers in one doubting article in 2002. The statement cannot actually be refuted, for we know nothing about his incidental possessions. But the writer might just as well have suggested that Shakespeare never owned a pair of shoes or pants. For all the evidence tells us, he spent his life naked from the waist down, as well as bookless, but it is probably that what is lacking is the evidence, not the apparel or the books. #Quote by Bill Bryson
