"We use the words 'classics' for books that are treasured by those who have read and loved them; but they are treasured no less by those who have the luck to read them for the first time in the best conditions to enjoy them." Italo Calvino "Why Read the Classics"
A classic is a book that many before us have loved and therefore is worth giving it a try. And then we will love them and hope that many after us will love them just as much.
"Where her books were, she was." Maureen Johnson, Truly Devious

"...bookshops are magic, and books are the road maps by which misfits find each other." Wendy Welch, The Little Bookstore of Big Stone Gap
Books are the most magical thing we can imagine, they can send us anywhere in time and space whenever we want.
