    This young man sits on the side of Empire Road in South Africa and instead of begging he provides book reviews. He collects all these books, reads each of them, and provides reviews for people passing by. If you like the review, he will try to sell you the book. This is how he makes a living. (

You never know where a book might take you

Secondhand Books quote by Virginia Woolf// This reminds me of a premise of a book, or was it a movie? or maybe a movie based on a book...

"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."

Great time to read: The Cider House Rules by John Irving, Pet Sematary by Stephen King, and The Harry Potter series.

A book is good company. It is full of conversation without loquacity. It comes to your longing with full instruction, but pursues you never. ~ Henry Ward Beecher
