I admit it. I am an addict. Addicted to reading by those pavement magicians shouting at us like circus barkers: those booksellers endlessly rearranging their displays and corrupting us with their seductive litany of titles-as they lured us away from the little world of the self and into whole galaxies of the imagination.

-Gita Mehta, Snakes and Ladders

    I have to say that I would be afraid to be camped under that many books. Deadly!

    I do agree wholeheartedly with the quote, it is lovely and oh so true.

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.
