Read Jeanette Winterson’s views on books, via twitter, this morning.
“It was actually books that started to make those pockets of freedom, which I hadn’t otherwise experienced. I do see them as talismans, as sacred objects. I see them as something that will protect me, I suppose, that will save me.”
Ihave held them as saviours all through these years, much as Winters on reflects. Every time spirit sinks, soars or just withers away… Make way to the book shelves.
