“I think books are like people, in the sense that they’ll turn up in your life when you most need them.”
– Emma Thompson

I love the idea of this – that somehow, somewhere fate looks down on you and thinks hey, I know exactly what that girl/guy needs, they need this book right here! That will cheer them up/solve their problem! *Rummages through pile of books, beams to specific place on earth.*
It’s such a romantic and temping thought, even though we know books are inanimate objects. I can’t say that this has happened to me very often, but there have been a few occasions where I’ve picked up a book at the exact right moment, and it’s contained some message or insightful thinking that has helped me clear my head.
Has a book ever turned up when you really needed it? Do you think books choose their readers?
