I think kids want the same thing from a book that adults want - a fast-paced story, characters worth caring about, humor, surprises, and mystery. A good book always keeps you asking questions, and makes you keep turning pages so you can find out the answers. Rick Riordan
Bliss is the ocean, a towel on the sand, the sun out, the chance to swim in waves or walk dragging a stick behind you, a good book, a cold drink. Deb Caletti
Travelling is a great time to catch up on my reading. It's hard falling asleep in new places, but a good book always makes it easier. Amanda Hocking
Reading is a joy for my kids, and to swing in a hammock on a lazy summer day reading a good book just goes with summer. Marcia Gay Harden
A bad book and good marketing won't work, the same way a good book and bad marketing will also not work. There is no choice in the matter that if you need to write a good book, you also need to have good marketing for it. Amish Tripathi
