About books

A friend pointed out these quotes about books in “The Shadow of the Wind” by Carlos Ruiz Zafon to me last night –

Every book, every volume you see here has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens.

and

In the shop we buy and sell them, but in truth books have no owner. Every book you see here has been someone’s best friend. 

Hmmmm, me likey! Sounds like an endorsement for Book Crossing to me……
