Famous people, reading… Vincent Price

Vincent Price
“There comes a time in life when you know what you like and have to make up your mind to like what you know, or at least have begun to know. In other words, you must determine in what direction your knowledge is leading, thus far.”

Vincent Price

Okay… I know what I like, but how do I know I don’t like a book/genre/author if I don’t try it? He is rather contradictory, elsewhere in the same book he says, “There’s something fascinating about seeing something you don’t like at first but directly know you will love—in time.” So, read genre, read literary fiction, read poetry, read memoir, read non-fiction. Read it all.

  1. I agree with you, Sandra. With all due respect to Mr. Price, anytime I come across a quote or a piece of advice that contains the word “must,” I take it with a grain of salt.
