I have just finished Shadow of the Wind, by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. It was a beautiful book. One of the many to add to my List of Life Changing Books. It is such a bittersweet feeling to finish a great book. I want to tell everyone in the world about how lovely it is, how they should read it so it can affect their lives the way it affected mine, but I also feel so close to the characters that I want to keep them and their stories all to myself.
"Books are like mirrors; you only see in them what you already have inside of you."
you know how when you go to a concert or show of some sort and the person on stage is like “HOW’S EVERYONE DOING TONIGHT?!?!?!?!” and the audience cheers back? why? you’re not answering the question, you’re just yelling. imagine if we did that in daily conversation. “hey jeff, how are ya?” and jeff just starts screaming and clapping in your face
