"I write to give myself strength. I write to be the characters that I am not. I write to explore all the things I’m afraid of."

"I’m the kind of person who likes to be by himself. To put a finer point on it, I’m the type of person who doesn’t find it painful to be alone. I find spending an hour or two every day running alone, not speaking to anyone, as well as four or five hours alone at my desk, to be neither difficult nor boring. I’ve had this tendency ever since I was young, when, given a choice, I much preferred reading books on my own or concentrating on listening to music over being with someone else. I could always think of things to do by myself."

“Buying books is immensely comforting. Maybe I won’t read them immediately, but they make me feel so much better whenever I’m sad and blue. Just their presence, it’s like having more to look forward to.”

I am most thankful for you.
You have changed my life."

"Every reader knows the feeling. You’re walking through a bookstore, completely overwhelmed. There’s so much to read. Covers and titles taunt you from the shelves, all clamoring for your attention — and your wallet. Some books you’ve heard of. Others leap out at you for the first time. That’s when the daydream kicks in: what if I could just take anything I wanted?"
