From Michael and Daniel: "How many books do you own?"
You know, I've never actually counted them. There's one wall in the living room of my house which is nearly all bookshelves, and I keep my... Read more of this blog post »

“On my website there's a quote from the writer Anthony Burgess: "The greatest gift is the passion for reading. It is cheap, it consoles, it distracts, it excites, it gives you knowledge of the world and experience of a wide kind."

I've always found that inspiring because the written word, as an art form, is unlike any other: movies, TV, music, they're shared experiences, but books aren't like that. The relationship between a writer and a reader is utterly unique to those two individuals. The world that forms in your head as you read a book will be slightly different to that experienced by every other reader. Anywhere. Ever. Reading is very personal, a communication from one mind to another, something which can't be exactly copied, or replicated, or directly shared.

If I read the work of, say, one of the great Victorian novelists, it's like a gift from the past, a momentary connection to another's thoughts. Their ideas are down on paper, to be picked up by me, over a century later. Writers can speak individually to readers across a year, or ten years, or a thousand.

That's why I love books.”

“You can't be like pop stars, but you can be part of their story. You can be their fan.”

“Music is very personal. It means different things to different people. To you it means belonging. To me it means knowing I exist.”
Simon Cheshire, Plastic Fantastic
