Quote of the Day (Paul Theroux, on How Reading Changes a Book)

“Reading alters the appearance of a book. Once it has been read, it never looks the same again, and people leave their individual imprint on a book they have read. Once of the pleasures of reading is seeing this alteration on the pages, and the way, by reading it, you have made the book yours.” —Paul Theroux, The Old Patagonian Express: By Train Through the Americas (1979)
