‘I cannot remember a time when I was not in love with them – with the books themselves, cover and binding and the paper they were printed on, with their smell and their weight and with their possession in my arms, captured and carried off to myself.’
– Eudora Welty
I love this quote and couldn’t agree with it more. I don’t just love reading, but everything about it, the beautiful cover of a book, the feel of the paper, the smell. Eudora sums it up brilliantly! 🙂
