A good book will keep you fascinated for days. A good bookshop for your whole life.

Indeed.

I really like how all bookstores or libraries are quiet. No one talks above a whisper. It’s like everyone is respecting and listening to the voices from the books. It’s truly magical.

(via bookphile)

Listen to the voices of the books.

Books on the bookshelves
And stacked on the floor
Books kept in baskets
And propped by the door
Books in neat piles
And in disarray
Books tucked in closets
And books on display
Books filling crannies
And books packed in nooks
Books massed in windows
And mounded in crooks
Libraries beckon
And bookstores invite
But book-filled rooms welcome
Us back home at night!

His hands were weak and shaking from carrying far too many books from the bookshop. It was the best feeling.

Bookstores always remind me that there are good things in this world.
