I love libraries. I love the light. I love the quiet. I love the simplicity. They're just books. . . but they're not just books. It's crazy to think how many words there are in this library. How many facts and fantasies are on the pages. It makes me want to freeze time and just look at all the books, row by row.
A good book should leave you... slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading it. ~William Styron, interview, Writers at Work, 1958
