It was a particularly good evening to begin a book.

Tove Jansson, The Summer Book

The library in summer is the most wonderful thing because there you get books on any subject and read them each for only as long as they hold your interest, abandoning any that don’t, halfway or a quarter of the way through if you like, and store up all that knowledge in the happy corners of your mind for your own self and not to show off how much you know or spit it back at your teacher on a test paper.

Polly Horvath, My One Hundred Adventures

“Come with me,’ Mom says.
To the library.
Books and summertime
go together.”

Lisa Schroeder, I Heart You, You Haunt Me

The reader became the book; and summer night
Was like the conscious being of the book.

Wallace Stevens
