Quotes On Reading

At its core, GoneReading is all about the love of reading and all things bookish.  And apparently we’re not alone.  History is filled with characters from all walks of life who cherished the written word, many of whom penned their bookish sentiments into quotes.

And so one tiny little part of our philanthropic mission is to spread the joy of reading through the dissemination of bookish quotes, artfully rendered into the graphics you see below.

Help spread the word about GoneReading by sharing with your bookish friends on Pinterest and Facebook!
