“There are countless reasons for reading, but when you’re young and uncertain of your identity, of who you may be, one of the most compelling is the quest to discover yourself reflected in the pages of a book.”
Michael Cart

“In fact, when I finally shuffle off this mortal
coil, you will have to pry a book out of my cold, dead hands.”
