Favorite Quote:
“One must always be careful of books and what is inside them, for words have the power to change us." - Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare


From cover to cover

A story is told.

It's a collection of words,

A language of old.

 

Its pages are worn,

Their color is faded.

The corners are bent,

The margins are decorated 

 

But its ideas are the same.

The narrative is unchanging.

While the volume is lovingly worn,

The magic is unfailing.


The author's comments:

Reading has always been a huge part of my life. I believe in reading a book over and over until it is worn out from flipping pages and annotations. I believe that the power books hold in their words can last a lifetime.
