“Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens.” Carlos Ruiz Zafon, THE SHADOW OF THE WIND
In truth, there are so many amazing lines from this book that choosing just one is not easy. Still, as a writer, this quote speaks to me. While the writer gives birth to the book and pens the words, it is every person who reads those words that give the book life. No writer can thank their readers enough. And no writer can fail to love a book like this.
