My last refuge, my books: simple pleasures, like finding wild onions by the side of a road, or requited love.

Day 3: a book you grew up reading

Harry Potter by JK Rowling

This series means a lot to me. It will forever be one of my favorites.

A book is made from a tree. It is an assemblage of flat, flexible parts (still called ‘leaves’) imprinted with dark pigmented squiggles. One glance at it and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, the author is speaking, clearly and silently, inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people, citizens of different epochs, who never knew one another. Books break the shackles of time, proof that humans can work magic.
Carl Sagan (via welcome-to-existencee)

A wee little horror story for you, love.

Read. It makes you more intelligent. It’s that simple. We all see the universe through the tiny keyhole of our own eyes, and every book is another keyhole from which you can gaze.

I always forget how attached I get to characters in books. 

They affect me in so many different ways. And sometimes it’s really hard to handle.  

I have lived a thousand lives and I’ve loved a thousand loves. I’ve walked on distant worlds and seen the end of time. Because I read.
George R.R. Martin  (via thatconsultingfangirl)
Real books should be the offspring not of daylight and casual talk but of darkness and silence
Marcel Proust, Time Regained (via bibliophilebunny)
Sometimes, to get what you want the most, you have to do what you want the least.
My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult  (via justcrisel)
I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! — When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.
― Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice (via yohoyohoadisneylifeforme)
