 "Libraries are about freedom. Freedom to read, freedom of ideas, freedom of communication.
They are about education (which is not a process that finishes the day we leave school or university), about entertainment, about making safe spaces, and about access to information." 

- Neil Gaiman


All About Reading

 I know that  books seem like the ultimate thing that's made by one person, but that's not true.

Every reading of a book is a collaboration between  the reader and the writer who are making the story up together.
