“One glance at a book and you hear the voice of another person…perhaps someone dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, the author is speaking, clearly and silently, inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people, citizens of distant epochs, who never knew one another.”
Today I am relishing in the pleasure of books, yet again, and the sheer magic that some of them contain and create. Reading is the simplest and most rewarding pleasure on earth, and I am so grateful for the books I have read and those I will read in the future.
