“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 and dreamed with it. Everytime a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens.”
– Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind

    Odessa, I’m sure you’ll love it. When you sit down to read it make sure you don’t have any plans for the rest of the day.

    I loved this book about bookish things when I read it – I use it when teaching, because it’s full of good examples of great prose tricks.
