 Report 
on the TEAA recreational reading project
On the importance of reading:
It was simply clear that the work that students and I did was more efficiently executed if students read. Readers, I came to see, actually make themselves writers. The idea is just to get students to turn pages and to enjoy doing so, just the way readers everywhere do.

- Bill Jones, in the  Report  on the TEAA project.
There is no greater divide in life than the one between kids for whom the experience of learning to read is a painful or tedious one,... and those for whom the experiences of reading and writing are ... so intense as to offer a new life of their own.

- Adam Gopnik, in Angels and Ages
