As addictions go, reading is among the cleanest, easiest to feed, happiest.
~ Joseph Addison
Every form of addiction is bad, no matter whether the narcotic be alcohol or morphine or idealism.
~ Carl Jung
Tough choices face the biblioholic at every step of the way–like choosing between reading and eating, between buying new clothes and buying books, between a reasonable lifestyle and one of penurious but masochistic happiness lived out in the wallow of excess.
~ Tom Raabe, Biblioholism: The Literary Addiction
