For the past couple of months I've been on a book buying spree. I'm not quite sure why. I don't dedicate enough time to reading to read more than I buy. I seem to remember there being a vague quote about buy good books even if you never get to read them. I tried searching for that quote, didn't find it, but did run across another one that amused me.

Always read something that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it. ~P.J. O'Rourke

The source has many other good quotes about books. Search for the one about Braille.


I believe it is "Life's Little Instruction Book" that has the original quote you were searching for.
Yup. The fact that I own (and have also read that book) must say something. For those that are curious it's #19: Buy great books even if you never read them.
