 “In a good bookroom you feel in some mysterious way that you are absorbing the wisdom contained in all the books through your skin, without even opening them.”

– Mark Twain 

 

Ah, yes! One who shares my thought!

You’re standing in a library. A bookstore. Breathe deep. Smell the ink. Hear the stir of the pages. Feel the soft book covers. See the rows upon rows of volumes. They hold words. Many words. Many worlds.

Unlimited realms at your fingertips.

Reach out. Wrap your fingers around that book. The fat one. On the third shelf. Tucked in the far corner. With a jagged crease. Brush the worn title. Smile. Crack it open.

Ah.

A door to another world has been opened. Drink deep.
