“Well-meaning adults can easily destroy a child’s love of reading: stop them reading what they enjoy, or give them worthy-but-dull books that you like, the 21st-century equivalents of Victorian “improving” literature. You’ll wind up with a generation convinced that reading is uncool and worse, unpleasant.”

Neil Gaiman, “Why our future depends on libraries, reading, and daydreaming”


This is wonderful.

Personally, speaking from my experience of myself, I’d advise against such emotions, you can do much better! (:

At the moment I’m on summer holiday so I obviously have TONS of time being unemployed (which I half love half hate because I wish I were employed!) But when I’m at Uni I tend to read whilst eating and commuting, otherwise I wouldn’t have the time. (:
