Quote of the Day

The Book, Greatest Weapon in War Against Stupidity

"The book is second only to the wheel as the best piece of technology human beings have ever invented. A book symbolises the whole intellectual history of mankind; it's the greatest weapon ever devised in the war against stupidity."

--Author Philip Pullman in a speech at the Library Campaign's conference, printed in the Bookseller

I couldn't agree more.
