Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people, citizens of distant epochs, who never knew one another. Books break the shackles of time.
I came upon this quote while doing research for one of my stories. As a bibliophile, its truth struck me... and, as a writer, it makes me wonder if my words, too, will be able to reach through time and touch the future. Time will be the tell.
Also, trying to take these pictures ended up being pivotal to my day. In other words, I accidentally started to read one of them, and didn't realize what had happened until page 100. Ah well--it was worth it! (And, yes, I did go on to finish it.)
Have you read any good books recently?
...And, have you ever started to read a book by accident? You're going along your day, and suddenly find yourself reading? I can't be the only one! :D
