Quotes Sarah Liked

Lewis Buzbee
“The books of our childhood offer a vivid door to our own pasts, and not necessarily for the stories we read there, but for the memories of where we were and who we were when we were reading them; to remember a book is to remember the child who read that book.”
Lewis Buzbee, The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop: A Memoir, a History

Lewis Buzbee
“November, a dark, rainy Tuesday afternoon. This is my ideal time to be in a bookstore. The shortened light of the afternoon and the idleness and hush of the hour gather everything close, the shelves and the books and the few other customers who graze head-bent in the narrow aisles. There's a clerk at the counter who stares out the front window, taking a breather before the evening rush. I've come to find a book.”
Lewis Buzbee, The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop: A Memoir, a History
