Weekly quote

“Bea says that the art of reading is slowly dying, that it’s an intimate ritual, that a book is a mirror that offers us only what we already carry inside us, that when we read, we do it with all our heart and mind, and great readers are becoming more scarce by the day.”

Carlos Ruiz Zafon (The Shadow of the Wind)

  1. When did you read the book? Great quote! But, of course, every Zafon is full of great quotes. That man can write…!

  2. You should have told me! I could have brought my copy… You really should read that one. It’s awesome, though quite different. (And mum; thanks! :-))
