"A novel is never anything but a philosophy expressed in images. And in a good novel the philosophy has disappeared into the images." Albert Camus

    1. Yes, it's interesting to imagine it that way, right?

      My favourite is the one by Albert Camus, I also love him as an author.

      I don't agree with Gracie Allen at all. I like to read a book from page one to the end without skipping even a page forward until I've read the previous one.
