“What an astonishing thing a #book is. It’s a flat object made from a tree with flexible parts on which are imprinted lots of #funny #dark squiggles. But one glance at it and you’re inside the #mind of another #person, maybe somebody #dead for thousands of years. Across the #millennia, an #author is speaking clearly and silently inside your head, directly to you. #Writing is perhaps the greatest of human #inventions, binding together people who never knew each other, citizens of distant #epochs. #Books break the shackles of #time. A book is proof that #humans are capable of working #magic.”
