Every reader has found charms by which to secure possession of a page that, by magic, becomes as if never read before, fresh and immaculate. Libraries are the vaults and treasure chests of these charms.

    I’m glad to be the guardian of one of those vaults and treasure chests! :) Great quote. It reminded me that I should read more Manguel. I’ve only read The Library at Night.

    Hi Eva! I hope you’re doing well today. No need to reply, just letting you know I thought of you today. Love that quote above.

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.
