Archie says books are our best lovers and our most provoking friends.
It's good to be reminded that the world is full of stories that are, potentially, at least as painful as yours.
But you say it “in-TREE-ging”, LJ, not “in-trig-you-ing”.’ I said it back to her, ‘In-TREE-ging.’ (Okay, this is a problem with books. But the only one.)
I reminded myself that a beginning and an ending are two different places, and, in real life, you might be able to make your own ending, whatever had gone before.
First lines did not define last pages in real life the way they did in books.
God, I don't love much but I love words.
