The Shadow of the Wind

by Stacey

While middle grade fiction seems to be calling to me these days, I am taking a break to read a ‘grown up’ book. One of my favorite parts of the year is when I get to bid on the best auction item ever and I won it this year. Each month, I will be receiving a book from a reader friend whose recommendations have always been wonderful.

Last night I began reading The Shadow of the Wind and while I have barely read enough to give even a summary, I just have to share this quote…

This is a place of mystery, Daniel, a sanctuary. Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived it and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, it’s spirit grows and strengthens.

How beautiful and how true…
