Stephen King is arguably the most influential author alive. So, when he provides his opinion on books, people listen. Below is a wonderful quote by him on books as an entertainment medium, as well as a fun interview King did earlier this year with Craig Ferguson.
“Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn’t carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life.” – Stephen King
