To be a reader is to live the lives of so many characters. We walk the paths of adventurers, experience the drama of the lives of romantic couples, and fight battles with the enemy on our tails. For non-readers, readers appear to be lazy and have no lives for all we do is sit with our noses in books. Little do they realize that, although we appear introverted and antisocial, we have some of the most incredible lives full of imagination and adventure.

Only another reader can truly understand a fellow reader, so here are 15 quotes from authors that represent their readers:
