“Reading changes your life. Reading unlocks worlds unknown or forgotten, taking travelers around the world and through time. Reading helps you escape the confines of school and pursue your own education. Through characters – the saints and the sinners, real or imagined – reading shows you how to be a better human being.”
Donalyn Miller, The Book Whisperer: Awakening the Inner Reader in Every Child

“{Setting} Goals has a directive effect on cognition and behavior, directing attention and effort toward goal- relevant tasks and away from irrelevant activities. Goals also serve an energizing function, which stimulates individuals to exert the effort necessary to match the demands of the task (Schunk, 2001).” ~ Consuelo Cabral-Márquez, in Motivating Readers: Helping Students Set and Attain Personal Reading Goals.
