My Jr High library had all those old posters of famous people with slogans about how cool reading is. I don’t know how effective those were, but I feel like “Reading is what makes silence interesting” would make for the greatest library poster.
Also, I never said anything that insightful in 7th grade. Or 8th grade. Or all of high school. Probably not college either. I’m sure I’ve said a few nice things in the last couple of years.
