'Sometimes you read a book so special that you want to carry it around with you for months after you've finished just to stay near it.' [Markus Zusak]
'I'm going to go to my room and read for awhile, okay?
'A book lying idle on a shelf is wasted ammunition.
Like money, books must be kept in constant circulation...
A book is not only a friend, it makes friends for you.
When you have possessed a book with mind and spirit, you are enriched.
But when you pass it on you are enriched threefold.'
'Perhaps there is some secret sort of homing instinct in books that brings them to their perfect readers. How delightful if that were true.'
[Mary Ann Shaffer, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society]
