For a long time I haven’t posted any quotes, but I feel like it’s time again for one!
So, here it is: I read it not so long ago, and I thought since it’s about books/writing/writers, I share it with you!
“The personality of an author shines through in the book they are writing whether they like it or not. Sometimes this is quite unconnected with the subject of the book itself. That is why evil can be so attractive and good, sometimes, so repellent.”
— James Hartley: The Invisible Hand
I’m not sure it’s much of a discussion starter, but for some reason these few words caught my eye – and I think they are so true! Reading someone’s words you also get to know (or rather feel) some things about them, weather they intended to give those little things away or not. And that is one of the things I love so much about reading!
Reading connects people. ❤ But I don’t really have to explain that to you guys, right? The bookish community is something wonderful. Right?
