"Books are not only the arbitrary sum of our dreams, and our memory. They also give us the model of self-transcendence. some [people think of reading only as a kind of escape: an escape from the "real" everyday world to an imaginary world, the world of books. Books are much more. They are a way of being fully human."- Susan Sontag
