Says Sue Grafton, mystery writer: "Make a show of your reading. Let your children see the pleasure you take in reading a good book. Let them see that you can't wait to finish dinner so you can get into your pajamas and read."

Says Joanne Jacobs, columnist: "The Internet is not a teacher. It is a very large, very badly organized library. It can be a superb research tool, vastly expanding access to information. It can be a huge waste of time. Users must be able to distiguish [among] knowledge, nonsense, trivia, hysteria, and hype. Before students can use the Internet to expand their understanding of the world, they will have to learn a great deal from human teachers. ... They have to learn to read well."
-- In THE DENVER POST, 13 February 1997.
