Bell Books Business Sign

‘I COUD NEVER HAVE DREAMT that there were such goings-on in the world between the covers of books, such sandstorms and ice blasts of words,,, such staggering peace, such enormous laughter, such and so many blinding bright lights,, , splashing all over the pages in a million bits and pieces all of which were words, words, words, and each of which were alive forever in its own delight and glory and oddity and light.’ Dylan Thomas, Notes on the art of Poetry

Or, here are another writer’s thoughts on the topic of books: ‘I keep collecting books I know I'll never, never read; My wife and daughter tell me so, And yet I never heed. "Please make me," says some wistful tome, "A wee bit of yourself." And so I take my treasure home, And tuck it in a shelf. And now my very shelves complain; They jam and over-spill. They say: "Why don't you ease our strain?" "Some day," I say, "I will." So book by book they plead and sigh; I pick and dip and scan; Then put them back, distressed that I am such a busy man… Chekov is caviare to me, While Stendhal makes me snore; Poor Proust is not my cup of tea, And Balzac is a bore. I have their books, I love their names, And yet alas! they head, With Lawrence, Joyce and Henry James, my Roster of Unread. I think it would be very well if I commit a crime, And get put in a prison cell and not allowed to rhyme; Yet given all these worthy books according to my need, I now caress with loving looks, But never, never read.’ Robert Service, Book Lover
