“When a reader falls in love with a book, it leaves its essence inside him, like radioactive fallout in an arable field, and after that there are certain crops that will no longer grow in him, while other, stranger, more fantastic growths may occasionally be produced.”
Salman Rushdie, Books vs. Goons, L.A. Times, April 24, 2005 (via hoomanao)

“Isn’t it odd how much fatter a book gets after you’ve read it several times? As if something was left between each page every time you read it, feelings, thoughts, sounds”
