The BEST moments in reading…

Just received a great comment on my “Thinking through your fingers” post.

Do not miss Michael’s quote about how personal reading can seem at times:

“The best moments in reading are when you come across something – a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things – that you’d thought special, particular to you. And here it is, set down by someone else, a person you’ve never met, maybe even someone long dead. And it’s as if a hand has come out, and taken yours.”   – The History Boys

Reminds me of one of my favorite quotes about reading:

“We read to know we are not alone.”   –  C.S. Lewis

Through the Internet and blogs I can now WRITE to know I am not alone too!
