Pickle Me This

March 31, 2011

Something happens

“That is why I have ignored email and the Internet long enough to write and, as importantly — perhaps more importantly — to read. To read and read books, more books, beautiful books that smell of old paper and sometimes mildew and ink. Crisp new strangely confident books. I know that a good novel can change a life. Books changed my life. But as importantly, they have given me so much pleasure. Something happens when the right pages are opened at the right time; that invisible liquid lifts, flows up off the page, and the enters the reader’s mind and heart.” –from Karen Connelly’s essay “How to Swim in a Sea of Shit” from Finding the Words
