Quote of the Week – Roald Dahl

Today’s quote of the week was sent to me by Eliza Keating author of the Children’s book Folk of Feodora’s Lane (click on the title to go to her site)!

“So please, oh PLEASE, we beg, we pray, Go throw your TV set away, And in its place you can install, A lovely bookshelf on the wall.” -Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory)

I especially like that quote! Thanks Ms. Keating! If anyone has a great quote about books or reading for my quote of the week please email it to me at Erik@thiskidreviewsbooks.com .

  1. Hi Erik. I like this quote because we did throw away our TV to make room for more books.
    Here’s another quote:
    “When I have a little money, I buy books; and if I have any left, I buy food and clothes.”
    ― Desiderius Erasmus Roterodamus

  2. Hey! Good work on the TV! Since you’ve already heard the Erasmus quote, here’s another:
    “There is no mistaking a real book when one meets it. It is like falling in love.”
    ― Christopher Morley

  3. Great quote! I’ve used it myself.

  4. Good one! I just finished The BFG the other day. Roald Dahl is an amazing storyteller.
