"Of course anyone who truly loves books buys more of them than he or she can hope to read in one fleeting lifetime. A good book, resting unopened in its slot on a shelf, full of majestic potentiality, is the most comforting sort of intellectual wallpaper."  - David Quaimen (via prettybooks)

A great book should leave you with many experiences, and slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading. - William Styron

I have come to the conclusion that good books will leave you with a smile on your face.

But great books will leave you heartbroken and likely in the fetal position because the author steals your soul with their words, and the very thought of leaving the world and the characters hurts.
