The Shadow of the Wind
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…
One of my absolute favorites. It won’t surprise you that I even remember that specific passage! xox
