“This is not a real book; not really. A real book tells a story. A real book starts at the beginning and has a middle and an end and I should know. I've read enough of them. So many that one day I woke up as a character in one.

“Life is a book and you are its author. You detemine its plot and pace and you--only you--turn its pages.”
