Great Quote from a famous author:

"It was clear that the books owned the shop rather than the other way about. Everywhere they had run wild and taken possession of the their habitat, breeding and multiplying and clearing lacking and strong hand to keep them down." Agatha Christie (1963)

"She loved being surrounded by books. Uncarting them, shelving them, designing displays. She love the smell and the texture and the look of them. And the surprises uncovered when she flipped one open at random and saw the play of words on paper." Face the Fire

"There's a time when you're super-little when you don't really know yet that bad things exist. It's before that first bully pushes you down on the nursery-school floor and says something like 'I'm a lion and I'n going to eat you up.' It's before that first grade teacher puts you in a timeout for talking, even though you weren't talking and it was actually Stephen Sills. It's before you see your best friend's dad punch her mom. That's when you realize people aren't always good."

Endure by Carrie Jones
