Examples of unread in a Sentence

  1. Cara Brostrom:

    It's unread in my inbox.

  2. Anthony Burgess:

    Americans will listen, but they do not care to read. War and Peace must wait for the leisure of retirement, which never really comes: meanwhile it helps to furnish the living room. Blockbusting fiction is bought as furniture. Unread, it maintains its value. Read, it looks like money wasted. Cunningly, Americans know that books contain a person, and they want the person, not the book.

  3. Dennis Koenig:

    Dreams are postcards from our subconscious, inner self to outer self, right brain trying to cross that moat to the left. Too often they come back unread return to sender, addressee unknown. That's a shame because it's a whole other world out there--or in here depending on your point of view.

  4. Isaac D?Israeli:

    Is a preface exquisitely written? No literary morsel is more delicious. Is the author inveterately dull? It is a kind of preparatory information, which may be very useful. It argues a deficiency of taste to turn over an elaborate preface unread: for it is the attar of the author?s roses, every drop distilled at an immense cost. It is the reason of the reasoning, and the folly of the foolish.

  5. Ursula K. Le Guin:

    The unread story is not a story; it is little black marks on wood pulp. The reader, reading it, makes it live: a live thing, a story.
