These twenty bookmarks are assembled into a book on the business of reading: why we do it and what it can do for us. Take the opportunity to pause at the start and end of your reading to reflect on the vital place of books and literature in our lives.
"The moment we cry in a book is often not when things are sad but when they turn out to be more beautiful than we expected. We cry about our hopes."
"Books are like people; we meet many but fall in love very seldom. Perhaps only ten books will ever truly mark us. We shouldn't feel ashamed of abandoning the ones that don't work for us."
