Books On My Shelf

"In my experience when people once begin to read they go on. 
They begin because they think they ought to and they go on 
 because they must. Yes. They find it widens life. We're all
 greedy for life, you know, and our short span of existence 
 can't give us all that we hunger for, the time is too short
 and our capacity not large  enough. But in books
 we experience all life vicariously."
