“The shop owner did not try to push the book on any of her customers. She knew that in the wrong hands such a book could easily be dismissed, or, worse, go unread. Instead she let it sit where it was in the hope that the right reader might discover it.” —Nicole Krauss (The History of Love)
“In a good bookroom, you feel in some way that you are absorbing the wisdom contained in all the books —through your skin, without even opening them.” —Mark Twain
