"some books are meant / to be read just like this / alone, with the evening, / a bowl of fruit ripening / waiting for the reader / to grow hungry, but / she won't, the book / will devour her, / and it / will soon / become / morning."
carl sagan - “Across the millennia, an author is speaking clearly and silently inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people who never knew each other, citizens of distant epochs. Books break the shackles of time. A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic.”
I love reading books again and again. It's like coming back to old friends. And you will always notice something new or make a new connection that you hadn't thought of before. Even if the world in that book is always the same, the reader is not, thus the story will always grow.
