People feel no obligation to buy books

"People feel no obligation to buy books. It isn't their fault. Art seems cheap to them, because almost always it is cheap... People stick any kind of stuff together between covers and throw it at them." Letters of Sherwood Anderson Author: Howard Mumford (Edited by) Anderson]

Quoted from A Dictionary of Library and Information Science Quotations. Edited by Mohamed Taher & L S Ramaiah. ISBN: 8185689423 (New Delhi , Aditya, 1994) p. 8. See Amazon.com.

I loooove books and gobble up the imagery in them, but some people I know won't open a book cover.

I'm thrilled to have found this blog because I am a quote ponderer. Especially love the quotes from different eras.
