Quotation of the Week

12th December

[T]hey were the ones that revealed to me the bookworm’s prime directive: any book is better than no book. Always. You don’t necessarily have to enjoy the book - though obviously that’s the ideal, and most books ARE enjoyable - as long as the space inside you that can only be filled by reading is receiving the steady stream of words for which it constantly hungers.

Lucy Mangan, Bookworm: A Memoir of Childhood Reading (2018)
