Reader, I going to marry him.*

What she was finding also was how one book led to another, doors kept opening wherever she turned and the days weren't long enough for the reading she wanted to do. 
Alan Bennett

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

I read like a wolf eats. 
I read myself to sleep every night. 

Gary Paulsen

Many a book is like a key to unknown chambers within the castle of one’s own self. 
Franz Kafka

I Really Should Be Writing But...Olympics

Here's the next post in my not-very-regular 'I really should be writing but...' series.
