I’ve never even heard of this book but now this author is my hero
“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 a proof that humans are capable of magic”

Exactly. Which is why I love “Paper Towns” so much more than those vampire books. It’s also why after reading “Twilight,” I was determined to develop my main characters as differently from Edward and Bella as possible.
“You could come back for a visit,” William said.
“It would be too hard. Certain places you must never return to.

My parents are moving to Washington State & got rid of most of their stuff. I would not, however, allow them to get rid of their books. So now I have a bookshelf full of books I read as a kid (& teenager). Which means I won’t have to visit Half Price Books anytime soon. It’s time for me to so some rereading.
Right now, I’m working on Asimov’s “Foundation.”
