So I’m obsessed with Stephen King’s writing. He gets life more than I can ever hope to.
I also LOVE quotes from wise people. I’m actually confused why I haven’t posted more of my favorites. Anyway, this one is perfect. If I could tell anyone the secret to discovering great books, this is what I’d say:
“There are books full of great writing that don’t have very good stories. Read sometimes for the story…don’t be like the book-snobs who won’t do that. Read sometimes for the words—the language. Don’t be like the play-it-safers who won’t do that. But when you find a book that has both a good story and good words, treasure that book.”
