"No matter how ephemeral it is, a novel is something.." -- Mario Vargas Llosa
'Tis the good reader that makes the good book; in every book he finds passages which seem confidences or asides hidden from all else and unmistakenly meant for his ear; the profit of books is according to the sensibility of the reader; the profoundest thought or passion sleeps as in a mine, until it is discovered by an equal mind and heart. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson, Society and Solitude, 1870

Day after day she'd dive, head first, back into the worlds that were born of other's minds. A sigh of relief would escape her lips as the spine creased and the smell of warn pages filled her nose. Here she could escape the horrors and tragedies that befell her, here was where hope existed and dreams came true.
