Quote of the Day (Jorge Luis Borges, on Reading Bad Books)

“I have always advised my students: If a book bores you, leave it; don't read it because it is famous, don't read because it is modern, don’t read a book because it is old.  . . . If a book is tedious to you, don’t read it; that book was not written for you.”—Jorge Luis Borges, Professor Borges: A Course on English Literature, edited by Martin Arias and Martni Hadis (2013)
