atkins bookshelf quotations“I like a thin book because it will steady a table; a leather volume because it will strop a razor; and a heavy book because it can be thrown at a cat.”

“The man who doesn’t read good books has no advantage over the man who can’t read them.”

Mark Twain (1835-1910), American writer and humorist.
