“Books are food,” wrote the English critic Holbrook Jackson, “libraries are so many dishes of meat, served out for several palates. …We eat them from love or necessity, as other foods, but most from love.”

-Anne Fadiman, Ex Libris

    A scrumptious message indeed! Lovely post. I invite you join a Jane Austen books celebration in January 2012 as I see that she happens to be one of your favourites. Please visit my blog here for more information if you wish to participate.

    Cheers :)

Thank you for commenting! For a long while, my health precluded me replying to everyone. Yet I missed the conversation, so I'm now making an effort to reply again. It might take a few days though, and there will be times when I simply can't. Regardless, I always read and value what you say.
