YES, I want to shake Webster for so many of her attitudes that she puts into Sallie.

But I also like Sallie an awful lot and I love watching the orphanage take shape.

“When you're a kid, and you first start reading grown-up books, it's like looking in a window at night at people who think no one is around.”
David Huddle, The Story of a Million Years

Betty  Smith
“Some people do crossword puzzles. I do books.”
Betty Smith, Joy in the Morning

Cornelia Funke
“If you take a book with you on a journey," Mo had said when he put the first one in her box, "an odd thing happens: The book begins collecting your memories. And forever after you have only to open that book to be back where you first read it. It will all come into your mind with the very first words: the sights you saw in that place, what it smelled like, the ice cream you ate while you were reading it... yes, books are like flypaper—memories cling to the printed page better than anything else.”
Cornelia Funke, Inkheart

“A woman at one of mother's parties once said to me, "Do you like reading?" which smote us all to silence, for how could one tell her that books are like having a bath or sleeping, or eating bread - absolute necessities which one never thinks of in terms of appreciation.

Rachel Ferguson, The Brontes Went to Woolworths

Jo Walton
“Bibliotropic," Hugh said. "Like sunflowers are heliotropic, they naturally turn towards the sun. We naturally turn towards the bookshop.”
