“Then I started reading. I read everything I could get my hands on, murder mysteries, The Good Earth, everything. By the time I was thirteen I had read myself out of Harlem. There were two libraries in Harlem, and by the time I was thirteen I had read every book in both libraries and I had a card downtown for Forty-Second Street… What I had to do then was bring the two things together: the possibilities the books suggested and the impossibilities of the life around me… Dickens meant a lot to me, for example, because there was a rage in Dickens which was also in me… And Uncle Tom’s Cabin meant a lot to me because there was a rage in her which was somehow in me. Something I recognized without knowing what I recognized.” James Baldwin in The Paris Review, The Art of Fiction No. 78 im Interview mit John Elgrably, Issue 91, Spring 1984

Nirgends kann man den Grad der Kultur einer Stadt und überhaupt den Geist ihres herrschenden Geschmacks schneller und doch zugleich richtiger kennen lernen, als in den Lesebibliotheken.“ Heinrich von Kleist

 “The art of not reading is a very important one. It consists in not taking an interest in whatever may be engaging the attention of the general public at any particular time. When some political or ecclesiastical pamphlet, or novel, or poem is making a great commotion, you should remember that he who writes for fools always finds a large public. A precondition for reading good books is not reading bad ones: for life is short.”  Arthur Schopenhauer

Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him.
