Quotation of the Week

18th September

This notion of book-as-object rather than mass-of-content was new to me. I considered it with interest, and rejected it entirely. There was, I reasoned, a finite amount of cash and number of opportunities for acquisition in this world and neither should be wasted on getting a book that was beautiful but that you didnít want to read. Quantity of content over quality of livery has been the philosophy I have clung to ever since[.]

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