“The reading of a fine book is an uninterrupted dialogue in which the book speaks and our soul replies.”
Well, I’ll be! Someone has managed to put into words, precisely what reading feels like. Wow!
“Give me a room whose every nook is dedicated to a book.”
This sounds like my ideal room!
“I cannot sleep unless I am surrounded by books.”
~Jorge Luis Borges
“Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”
Rainy days should be spent at home with a cup of tea and a good book
